Study to Examine the Relationship between Acadience Reading K-6 and State-Required Assessments

Are you interested in examining the relationship between Acadience Reading K-6 and your district's Common Core State Standards (CCSS) assessments? Acadience Learning, home of the Acadience family of assessments, is now accepting school districts to take part in a national study to compare Acadience Reading scores for 3rd-6th grade students to their results from state-required assessments aligned with the Common Core, such as PARCC and Smarter Balanced. This study will use Acadience Reading data from the 2018-2019 and/or the 2019-2020 school year and mandated state assessment data from the Spring of 2019 and/or Spring of 2020.

Acadience Reading 7-9

Acadience Reading 7–9 is a formative assessment for 7th to 9th grade students and is directly aligned with the Common Core Standards in Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. Acadience Reading 7–9 includes three measures: Maze, Silent Reading, and Oral Reading. Each measure is arranged in triads, which include one science passage, one social studies passage, and one prose passage. Research is currently being conducted on the reliability and validity of the measures and to validate the preliminary benchmark goals and gating procedures.

Acadience Math

Acadience Math is comprised of measures of early numeracy, computation, and problem solving that function as indicators of the essential skills that every child must master in order to become proficient in mathematics. Research is currently being conducted on the reliability of the measures and to validate the preliminary benchmark goals.
