Balanced Assessment System

An online module for educators and parents

This online module was designed to help educators and parents understand the balanced assessment system and Response to Intervention. It is divided up into four presentations. Each presentation has thought-provoking activities embedded within them. You are encouraged to proceed at your own pace; we've indicated some stopping points so you can take a break and think about all you've learned. 

At the end of each presentation is an opportunity for you to give us feedback to continue to improve our offerings to educators and parents. Please consider taking the time to complete the survey. The results will be anonymous, and we truly appreciate your feedback.
