Additional Research Opportunities
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.
