Now more than ever, educators must be intentional about how they allocate time and direct student attention. Resources must be targeted with precision—which is no simple task without data from your state’s year-end summative assessment and other locally-administered tests.
New Meridian’s Start Strong Assessment is the solution for educators who want to make informed decisions about resource allocation and combat missed opportunities to learn when schools across the United States reopen later this year.
Start Strong is a flexible and powerful tool designed specifically to address this unique time in our history, giving every teacher in your district the information they need to allocate time and resources equitably and efficiently.
Start Strong’s design is based on the most critical content standards from the student’s previous year of learning, allowing educators to quickly identify the areas where more support is needed in the context of the grade-level standards. Test items are aligned to state standards and are rigorous and complex, so the full depth of educational standards are measured.
Start Strong is designed to be delivered in a class period. This expedites access to quality assessment information to help educators plan their lessons and units.
Start Strong’s multiple-choice and technology-enhanced assessment items are machine scorable, offering teachers, schools and districts fast feedback on where students stand in the learning process.
Start Strong offers seamless online delivery and it can be administered at school or at home, allowing educators to gather assessment data regardless of the circumstances in your district when school starts in the fall. Students can take the test from their homes using their own computers.
Expert consultation, training and a full suite of documentation are built in to the Start Strong assessment, allowing for quick, seamless implementation.
New Meridian’s Start Strong Assessment, a beginning-of-year screening test that can be administered in a single period and delivers quick feedback, will be available in August.
