With the retirement of the Metropolitan Achievement and Readiness Tests, we have received numerous calls from educators searching for replacement assessments. We are excited to advise each caller (and often hear a sign of relief in return), that Scholastic Testing Service (STS) offers three assessment tools that will effortlessly replace existing testing programs, provide efficient and reliable score reporting, and integrate seamlessly with current administration procedures and testing windows.
- The Educational Development Series (EDSeries) is a standardized test battery that provides the most comprehensive coverage of all STS instruments. Featuring a total of nine skill areas, the EDSeries provides fast and useful score reporting, local and national norms, normal curve equivalents and a cognitive skills quotient.
- The newly revised Kindergarten Readiness Test (KRT) and School Readiness Test (SRT) are effective tools for determining a student’s readiness for beginning kindergarten and first grade respectively. Both KRT and SRT levels of readiness are related to national percentiles and stanines, allowing educators to learn as much as possible about individual student ability as well as group performance.
For more information, educational professionals can request preview copies (below) of KRT, SRT and EDSeries.
