Diagnostic Assessments

Unleash the power of granular educational assessments

Actionable Online Reading and Math Assessments to Support Student Learning

With the Let’s Go Learn suite of diagnostic assessments, classroom teachers, administrators, and even parents can access incredibly rich and meaningful diagnostic data in just clicks. Our assessments were designed around the individual student, not according to their grade level–a limitation of other educational assessments.  Teachers won’t wonder what to do next after administering Let’s Go Learn’s criterion-referenced assessments to their students. Our assessments:

  • Pinpoint student strengths and weaknesses, even when multiple years above or below grade level
  • Deliver granular data to help teachers make informed personalized learning decisions
  • Increase student achievement via fully automated personalized courses
  • Have validity at the skills/concepts level, making them useful for daily student grouping
  • Save time when you are writing IEPs and increase their quality
  • Provide granular data that rolls up for the superior summative reporting needed by administrators

Designed to measure what matters and identify critical student needs

Teachers already know which students are struggling and which are not.  They want to know what to do about it!

  • Standardized tests primarily focus on grade-level-ranged skills, limiting their diagnostic ability
  • Let’s Go Learn’s assessments are granular and K-12 adaptable to each student’s abilities
  • Performance assessments primarily produce single or summative scores that are not very diagnostic
  • Let’s Go Learn’s assessments produce multiple scores: 7 in reading, 44 in math
  • Many assessments use confusing scores, such as 725 or 85%, or language like “developmentally ready”
  • Let’s Go Learn is accurate at the skill/concept level and uses grade-level scores, which most people understand
  • Most K-12 educational assessments were designed as only summative assessments
  • Let’s Go Learn is valid and reliable at the skill/concept level, which translates to the summative level as well

Math Diagnostics

ADAM (Adaptive Diagnostic Assessment of Mathematics) is designed to be fully aligned with the Common Core, TEKS, and other state standards.  ADAM assesses across 44 constructs within NCTM’s five instructional strands.

DOMA Pre-Algebra intelligently assesses individual students in 14 Pre-Algebra constructs and follows with a detailed roadmap for remediation/instruction.

DOMA Algebra assesses individual students in 11 Algebra constructs and follows with a detailed roadmap for remediation/instruction.

Our Math Formative Assessments break math progress monitoring into 44 adaptive sub-test diagnostics and 281 skill/concept quizzes.  All scores vertically align in grade levels to the full diagnostic assessment dataset.

Reading Diagnostics

Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment (DORA) is a K-12 measure that provides objective, individualized assessment data across eight reading measures that together profile each student’s reading abilities and prescribe individual learning paths.

DORA Phonemic Awareness is ideal for non-readers or struggling readers. It measures nine phonemic awareness skills using audio and picture-only items for a thorough assessment of oral phonemic awareness skills.

DORA Spanish/EDELL is a powerful diagnostic online assessment of students’ Spanish-reading abilities.

DORA Spanish/EDELL provides an effective means of comparing students’ first-language Spanish abilities with their developing second-language English-reading skills.

DORA Dyslexia provides educators with a quick, fully online way to screen for possible dyslexia in students of any grade level.  It examines five areas of early reading and provides a breakout of these skills.  It also includes a mouse/touch-screen dexterity check so that “non-pass” scores can be isolated for possible test-taking bias.

Our Reading Formative Assessments break reading progress monitoring into 7 adaptive sub-test diagnostics and 90 skill/concept quizzes.  All scores vertically align in grade levels to the full diagnostic assessment dataset.

Diagnostic Assessment Key Features

Common Questions

Can schools use Let's Go Learn's tests for summative purposes as well?

There are many different types of assessments, but there is a large advantage to the granular data provided by Let's Go Learn's criterion-referenced assessments. This specific, individualized data is useful for informing the learning process and accelerating student learning, and it can also be rolled up for summative purposes. However, the contrary is not true. Screening assessments, benchmark tests, and performance-based assessments are generally not good at finding students' specific gaps to mitigate learning loss and unfinished learning.

Can Let's Go Learn's assessments be used for formative testing?

LGL's core multiple-measured assessments, such as DORA and ADAM, provide overall comprehensive diagnostics on each student in math and reading. However, the formative assessment suite allows

How do Let's Go Learn's assessments support response to intervention and the multi-tier system of support initiatives at school districts?

Let's Go Learn can support any assessment process needed in RTI: universal screening, Tier 2 and 3 diagnostic assessment, and formative assessment for progress monitoring. In addition, the Let's Go Learn platform is ideal in providing districts with a uniform tool for all teachers and departments. It encourages collaboration, as teachers use the same testing vocabulary and work together to improve student outcomes and overall achievement. Finally, the data can also support classroom instruction via data or through automatic online intervention, using our LGL Edge instructional series in reading and math.

Can Let's Go Learn be used as a general classroom assessment?

Let's Go Learn's assessments can be used for general education testing, whether in a whole class, intervention, or special education setting. In the classroom, they can be used for flexible grouping or for scaffolding before whole-class lessons.

Are DORA, ADAM, and DOMA norm-referenced assessments?

No, they are criterion-referenced assessments. But they can still be used for summative purposes, since they are all vertically scaled to grade-level scores.

What kinds of computer-based tests does Let's Go Learn provide?

Today, Let's Go Learn would fall into the computer-adaptive test category. However, we should clarify that summative tests, like the SBAC state test, can be computer-adaptive. The SBAC test uses adaptive technology to reduce test time; Let's Go Learn uses its adaptive technology to increase diagnostic information and reduce total test time for students.

Is student success really dependent on testing knowledge or content?

We need to avoid confusing low student performance with content testing. At Let's Go Learn, we focus on evaluating foundational process skills that are necessary for long-term student success. Foundational reading and math skills allow students to master all other knowledge and content. Therefore, when there are hiccups in the processes of learning math and learning to read, we support teachers in helping students improve those skills. K-12 student assessment is not a bad thing if it is tied to personalized learning.
