Acuity Review

Company: McGraw-Hill
Assessment: Yes
Instruction: Yes
Grades: 3-12
Subject: Reading, Math
Delivery:
Notes:
Designed to predict student achievement in grades 3-12 on state accountability tests. Also used as pre-post achievement measure. Used to help schools meet state and federal testing goals. This is essentially a benchmark test. Not diagnostic. They advertise it as being diagnostic but it really doesn't answer why students miss certain benchmarks. Administrators buying this as a diagnostic tool as advertised will be disappointed. While there is associated instruction, it is not automated, and teachers must assign lessons from a bank.
