Easily digest data immediately
With assessments graded immediately, see in real-time the progress of a school or district, then drill down through visual graphs to the class level, student level, assessment level, or item level.
Adjust instruction in real-time
Assessment results provide insight as to what instruction tweaks need to be made in order to close learning gaps or misunderstandings before they become firmly established.
Foster collaboration among teachers and administrators
Empower multiple assessment creators to build an assessment simultaneously from two different devices. Share assessments among teachers, across schools, or set district-wide formative assessments.
Tie assessment to instruction, curriculum, and growth
Use PowerSchool Assessment to collect real-time data to drive instruction adjustments, curriculum changes, and quantifiable growth in actual areas of weakness.
PowerSchool Assessment gives teachers the tools to increase student growth and prepare students for end-of-year summative assessments. Use formative assessments to track real-time student learning, pinpoint areas of weakness or misunderstanding, and adjust instruction accordingly. Empower teachers and administrators to implement best practice instructional strategies for targeted, standards-based remediation to drive student growth.
"PowerSchool will continue to be our ‘go-to’ product for helping inform instruction. The alignment to the Virginia Standards of Learning is outstanding. PowerSchool’s questions are challenging and rigorous. We especially like the intuitiveness of the website."
Secure testing environments that build student confidence for summative exams
Deliver secure assessments to students using PowerTest following PARCC and SBAC guidelines. Mirror the end-of-year summative assessment experience with next-generation item types to build student confidence and focus assessment on comprehension instead of test navigation.
Give teachers real-time control over testing environments and tools to help minimize cheating or prevent students from accessing assessments when they shouldn’t. Empower teachers to print scantron sheets locally, freeing them from dependency on other school departments.
Drive student growth through accurate and timely instruction and remediation
Formative or interim assessment is one of the most powerful ways to identify student instructional needs, inform instruction, and guide the continuous growth cycle. Administer assessments aligned to appropriate standards – common core, state specific, next generation science, career and technical, etc. – as well as higher-order thinking categories, such as Bloom’s taxonomy of Webb’s Depth of Knowledge.
View immediate results by question, by student, by class, or by school to quickly identify learning gaps along standards. Empower teachers to adjust instruction based on what their students do or don’t understand, leading to targeted standards-based remediation.View related eBook
Only 30% of students passed the 2012 spring mathematics assessment at Jane H. Bryan Elementary school. By 2013, 76% of their students were passing the mathematics assessment thanks to PowerSchool.
Robust reporting drives professional development, curriculum changes, and resource decisions
Examine performance insights by standard, Bloom’s taxonomy, or Webb’s DOK and easily identify trends in class performance or weakness in comprehension as opposed to application. Examine student performance by teacher to identify teachers who are using best practices that can be shared across classes and schools.
Combine student growth and teacher performance data to inform scheduling and class assignments in ways that drive student growth. Intentionally foster cross-class collaboration among teachers and inform professional development choices based on aggregate performance data.
