Interim assessments

ANet provides formative interim assessments that give educators timely, actionable, and student-specific data.

The information you need to get your students where you want them

To improve student learning, educators need to know what students have and haven’t learned—and why

Our assessments help teachers understand what students know and are able to do with respect to the standards. They go well beyond right and wrong—they provide information about which students are succeeding or struggling, with what, and why.

Our reports provide timely, actionable, and student-specific data. These specific, targeted data are powerful tools teachers can use to help and empower each of their students. In other words, these are assessments for learning, not assessments of learning.

Assessment and the Common Core

We understand that the changing assessment landscape, driven by the higher rigor of the Common Core State Standards, adds a layer of complexity and anxiety for schools. It’s not simple to align goals and instruction as standards and assessments evolve.

ANet shoulders the burden of keeping up with these changes for our partners. We work closely with leading Common Core experts—such as PARCC, Smarter Balanced, and EngageNY—to ensure alignment of our assessments and stay abreast of the latest resources.

ANet offers our partners a bridge to the Common Core by customizing our assessments—so schools can maintain rigor and high expectations during this complex period of transition.

I love our work with ANet. It has been a huge boon to student achievement and my own capability. The assessments are key drivers for our transition to Common Core—they are our road map.

Prior to using ANet teachers in my school were attempting to create our own interim assessments. Now, teachers are able to use their time analyzing student achievement data and making instructional action plans!
