Anchorage School District Assessments
The Anchorage School Distrist uses iReady and ALEKS PPL as an integral part of the Formative Assessment process. iReady and ALEKS PPL diagnostics are offered three times a year to enable personalized, online instruction with lessons based on individualized learning needs to support your student’s learning. The diagnostics places students in the online program, giving them a tailored instructional path and will be adjusted by administering the diagnostic again in the winter.
The Interim Benchmark Assessments used in the Anchorage School District are FastBridge and MAP Growth. FastBridge and MAP Growth are used three times per year to assess all students to measure learning progression of standards and growth within the school year. Along with summative assessment data, such as PEAKS, interim benchmark assessment data is used for district program evaluation and accountability.
