Purpose

The purpose of the Acuity assessments is to provide diagnostic measures for grade 3-8 students in English/ Language Arts (E/LA), Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, as well as for students in Algebra I and English 10. Assessment reports provide standards-aligned performance data, which support an educator's ability to inform instruction at the student, class, school, and corporation level. For grades 3-8, there are three types of assessments available in the online Acuity assessment system: Predictive, Standard Diagnostic, and Curriculum Map-Aligned Diagnostic. For Acuity Algebra I and English 10, one type of assessment (Predictive) is available in the Acuity assessment system.
