Essential Tools for Assessing Student Progress and Bridging Your Curriculum to the Common Core State Standards
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Recognizing the necessity of placing authentic, full-length transitional iLEAP and LEAP practice assessments in the hands of teachers and students now, Triumph Learning has published ELA and math Coach Jumpstart Transitional Practice Test Booklets. Louisiana will begin high-stakes testing of the transitional iLEAP and LEAP this spring, making the availability of effective practice resources of paramount importance.
Exclusively designed for Louisiana, these Practice Test Booklets importantly replicate the length, passage selections, and question styles of the actual transitional exam, including a mix of multiple-choice and constructed-response practice items. Content is fully aligned to the Grade Level Expectations and explicitly tied to the Common Core State Standards.
These authentic practice experiences will allow students to build familiarity and acclimate to the increased rigor of the new tests, and will give teachers the ability to identify students’ weak areas and assess progress. These timely and crucial tools will support student achievement across the state.
