What our clients are saying about Pivot Assessments

I love using Pivot Assessments because the questions are comparable to ILEARN and the results provide me with so much insight into where my students stand academically. Being able to see the questions on each exam, and edit/add more questions allows the data received to be relevant to what is currently being taught in the classroom. It also opens up the possibility of adding questions to use as prior knowledge data before starting a new unit. My favorite report to use when scheduling and planning intervention is the standards mastery report. This allows me to see which students have mastered each standard and which students could use a little help. It is very user friendly for every classroom teacher.
