Before Carlos won a state award for Most Improved Schools, he struggled to understand the state report card.
As the youngest district superintendent in his state, Carlos always felt caught by surprise by the data on the state report card. There were so many metrics, and his assessment results just weren’t reported the same way. He needed a better assessment solution that not only provided a balance between measuring growth and on-grade performance, but tied those scores to state standards and had reports and analytics that kept him from being surprised. Then he discovered Ascensus plus Scantron Analytics.
Ascensus reports, combined with Scantron Analytics, let Carlos see exactly how his students are performing against state standards, in the same format his state uses for its report card. Because of these insights, Carlos is working smarter than ever and feels confident that he knows exactly how his district measures up to state expectations.
