RAPID's Adaptive Assessment Model

RAPID's Adaptive Assessment Model

Avoiding the need for multiple lengthy assessments, RAPID (Reading Assessment for Prescriptive Instructional Data) provides an in-depth, reliable measurement of critical reading and language skills. Using adaptive technology, the assessment adjusts its presentation of questions based on student performance, monitors student progress, and predicts students' future reading success. RAPID also provides a specific diagnostic profile for each student that helps educators group students for instructional planning and address skill weaknesses.
