iKnow Math delivers Curriculum Based, Criterion-Referenced assessment for any use with exceptional ease and convenience in many preset configurations. The test administration is not based on Item Response Theory or Rasch Scales, which means you get access to specific, detailed information about each item on each test, and how individual students and groups of students performed on each item. That means the data you get are much more actionable. They provide a more detailed basis for planning instruction to meet the needs of individual students and for monitoring their progress so that appropriate modifications can be made on a real-time basis.

  • Benchmark Tests give you the ability to compare performance across time by student, class, grade, teacher, school, district, and/or state.
    • Each test covers the range of topics taught in a single grade, based on Common Core Standards, or your State's standards. At the district or state level, customized content development is also available.
    • In addition to overall progress assessment, the reports allow you to see how students perform on each item on the assessment, not just summaries across strands.

  • Universal Screening assessments can be used once at the beginning of the year or at multiple points throughout the year.
    • They provide detailed diagnostic information by type of item so that teachers can see exactly what each student knows.
    • The screener can assess at any and all grades below the grade the student is enrolled in. Four or five grade levels can be assessed in a given class period since each grade level assessment averages less than 8 minutes in duration.
    • Summaries by topic provide information on what topics most students have difficulty with, and support small-group assignment for supplemental instruction, with or without iLearn programs.
    • When using iKnow Math in conjunction with iPASS from iLearn, the Universal Screening can replace the Placement Tests in iPASS, so duplicate testing is avoided.

  • Progress Monitoring is now incredibly easy and convenient. iKnow Math makes it truly practical to implement progress monitoring on a weekly basis without burdening anyone - the teacher, the administrators, or the students.
    • Probes are not based on Global Outcome Measures such as the rate of fluency for basic facts or procedures. They are brief, curriculum-based probes that quickly assess students' mastery of the range of concepts and skills at the "terminal level" within each grade. That means you get specific diagnostic information about the student's progress on every specific topic, not just an overall score. This is ideal for monitoring and managing the effectiveness of intervention efforts.
    • The probes average just under 8 minutes to complete, so they can be administered frequently without undue reductions in instructional time.
    • Because setup is so easy, and reports are immediately available in real time, progress monitoring requires virtually no effort, which makes regular testing far more feasible and practical.
    • Because students can easily be assigned a probe that matches the level at which they are working, you're no longer limited to monitoring progress only at grade level, where changes in achievement are less likely to be detected.
