Ascensus Growth K-2 Foundations Assessments K–2 Reading and Mathematics Foundations assessments are aligned to a set of skills, which were developed specifically for the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and involved a review of standards documents from state and national organizations including: the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the National Reading Panel (NRP), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), the International Literacy Association (ILA; formerly the International Reading Association), and the National  Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
