Performance Series is a standards-based assessment that uses an innovative computer adaptive
internet model to target the instructional level of each student. This is accomplished by adjusting question difficulty based on previous answers. If a student answers correctly, the test will increase the item difficulty to appropriately challenge that student. If a student answers incorrectly, the test engine will decrease item difficulty to the lower level skills. This enables Performance Series to provide an accurate evaluation of the student's abilities, either at, above, or below grade level. Once the test has been completed, the results are immediately available online, by student, class, school, and district.
