JACKSON — The Mississippi State Board of Education has approved the use of a K-3 assessment system from Renaissance Learning, a Wisconsin Rapids, Wis.-based provider of online assessments and data-powered teaching and learning solutions.
This integrated assessment system will include a universal screener and diagnostic assessment, kindergarten readiness assessment tool, and a third-grade reading summative assessment.
The Mississippi Department of Education will use the universal screener and diagnostic assessment in Literacy Target Schools while the kindergarten readiness assessment tool will be used initially by eleven early learning collaborative councils. Mississippi Department of Education plans to conduct the third-grade reading summative assessment statewide during the spring of 2015.
