About Scantron Performance Series
Understanding Performance Series
Athens City Schools has adopted Performance Series by Scantron as the diagnostic and placement tool to measure student progress. The Performance Series assessment makes it easy for teachers to identify a student's progress—and find the diagnostic information they need to place the student academically and manage his or her instruction.
Performance Series is a web-based, computer-adaptive test that ours schools use to:
- Identify a student's ability levels
- Demonstrate academic growth over time
- Place a student in the correct instructional programs
To better understand this assessment tool, parents are encouraged to read A Parent's Guide to Performance Series.
