Data Driven Instructional Decisions

Interim Assessments Deliver Key Insights on Student Learning

Regular assessment – aligned to standards and embedded in curriculum – can have a powerful and positive impact on student achievement. Interim assessments can be a key component of understanding student progress, supporting learning, and promoting equity by helping teachers understand student progress and personalize instruction to help meet their needs.

The CenterPoint interim assessments, available in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for grades K-11, are a standards-based solution that helps drive professional learning community work and instructional decision-making. The pre-designed or custom developed assessments use high-quality items to deliver reliable and accurate data that help administrators and educators determine student progress towards college and career readiness.

Interim Assessments Aligned to the EL Education Curriculum

Schools that use EL Education now have the option of using interim assessments that were built specifically for use with the high-quality curriculum. CenterPoint’s web-based, curriculum-aligned, grades 3-8 interim assessments mirror the EL Education Language Arts curriculum scope and sequence and were designed to complement the existing embedded formative assessments.
