1. Success on New High Stakes State Assessments Starts with Daily Rigor


    from Achieve3000 Added 4 0 0

    New high stakes state assessments are changing the types of text students read and raising the rigor of those texts and item types to challenging new levels. What is the big change? Students must read proficiently at a level previously expected of students two or three grade levels above. Students need daily practice interacting with informational text and increased text complexity to prepare effectively for new assessments—traditional, quick fix test prep a few weeks before the test is no longer the answer. Only Achieve3000 gives you the balanced instructional framework that you can implement today to make the shift towards the new rigor of new high stakes state assessments.
