Get more than a score with Ascensus

Scantron’s computer-adaptive, fully-digital Ascensus balanced assessment system provides adaptive tests that are grade-level independent to measure current ability and advances over time (i.e., how much have they grown?) plus fixed-form, on-grade tests that concretely measure whether students have proficiency in a specific set of knowledge (i.e., do they understand this grade-level standard today?). Help your teachers be better informed to make evidence based decisions and improve your multimetric accountability.
