Assessment Features

The Children’s Progress Academic Assessment (CPAA) is an interim assessment, meant to be used in a formative way to identify student strengths and weaknesses and help teachers decide what students are ready to learn next.

The assessment is adaptive and includes built-in scaffolding. Question difficulty adjusts based on every response to provide the appropriate level of challenge for each child. When students respond incorrectly, they receive a second chance. A follow-up question presents the same material in a different way. This unique feature allows the CPAA to pinpoint student misunderstandings more precisely and provide teachers with specific instructional recommendations to help every child excel.
