Diagnostic Assessments

Unlock Every Student’s Potential

Critical Insights into Students’ Strengths and Needs…in Time to Make a Difference

By pinpointing students’ learning strengths and needs in English language arts/literacy and mathematics in real time, teachers can shift instructional practices and priorities at the point and time of need.

CenterPoint’s innovative design offers flexibility and reduced testing time for teachers, so they can tests multiple times to track and ensure student progress throughout the year, without disrupting instructional plans.

The pre-designed or custom developed assessments are specifically aligned to rigorous college- and career-ready state standards.

Teachers use our diagnostic assessments to provide specific, immediate, actionable information through daily, ongoing instruction. These tools help teachers answer the question, “what comes next for student learning?”

Real-Time Data to Inform Instruction

Reports generated from CenterPoint’s diagnostic tools provide individual student data with full detail by skill, category, domain, and other key information along with class, school, and district-level data. This adds accuracy and efficiency, so teachers and administrators can make instructionally appropriate data-driven decisions in time to help students meet standards and improve performance.

“The diagnostic assessments helped us with students who were really struggling, a week at a time. We liked that we could have the student take the test multiple times, and use the data to set short term and long-term goals. The ability to have individual goal setting with kids is really powerful.”

– Jen, District Administrator
