Assessments & Evaluation

In conjunction with the public school district, Parkland offers diagnostic and special education reevaluation assessments for our students. These assessments include intellectual assessments, academic achievement, social/emotional, communication, functional and motor. In addition to formalized assessments, data collection takes place in the following areas:

  • Student reintegration
  • Student attendance
  • Behavior tracking and analysis
  • Curriculum-based measures


aimsweb™Plus provides benchmarking and progress monitoring for K–8 foundational reading and math skills, as well as screeners for dyslexia and behavior.

Using aimswebPlus, schools can now identify and group at-risk students early, monitor and report student progress, and predict performance on grade-level expectations.

The system builds upon brief, valid, and reliable measures of foundational skills in reading and math by adding standards-based assessments useful for instructional planning. The system goes even further by providing a teacher-friendly system for dyslexia and behavior screening.

aimswebPlus helps you to manage the entire assessment cycle—fall, winter, and spring benchmarking—identifying the students that are at risk of falling through the cracks, then monitoring their progress weekly.

An intuitive user interface and immediate results will help you quickly plan individualized teaching and interventions while preserving valuable classroom instruction time. –

HMH Growth Measures

HMH Growth Measures for Reading and Math (Grades 2-8) are a research-based and adaptive benchmark assessment for Math and Reading three times a school year. It uses students’ assessment performance to connect to HMH’s curriculum and instruction resources. In the area of Math teachers are able to use this data to provide students scoring below grade level with an intervention targeted at their instructional level to help increase their math skills throughout the school year. The Reading growth measure offers similar data for teachers and also has an intervention component students can participate in at their instructional level in order to help them gain the additional skills necessary to start working at grade level.

  • Each student has a unique test that is different from their peers in Reading and Math.
  • The assessment is administered three times a year to measure growth and adjust instruction/interventions.
  • The questions adapt to a student’s level of reading comprehension/math understanding in order to determine their current instructional level.
  • The assessment generally takes an average of 45 minutes to complete.

Imagine Edgenuity MyPath Intervention

This program features easy to administer, built-in adaptive assessments that provide a reliable, valid measure of each student’s ability and instructional grade level in reading and math. This assessment data helps teachers to formulate interventions for each student on an individual basis. When a student takes the initial benchmark assessment MyPath’s Smart Sequencer uses student proficiency data to target priority skills and assign skills based on a student’s individual and unique needs. In the area of math, intervention lessons are designed to focus on the critical skills of each grade so students can build strong conceptual understanding, develop procedural fluency, and apply mathematics in context. Math lessons are developed utilizing modeling, age appropriate math-manipulatives, and applications to real-world scenarios. For reading intervention, lessons are designed to help students progress toward comprehension of more complex texts by focusing on reading informational text, reading literature, and reading foundations. For students several years behind, Early Literacy bundles focus on building critical skills that help students feel confident and ready for grade-level texts. Teachers are able to adapt and individualize MyPath instruction based on student skill levels in each content domain and based on student mastery of new material using the built-in Mastery Checks.
