  • Support for instruction

    Each interim test session fits within a class period—an average of 50 minutes or less—to give you more control of your assessment schedule and to maintain respect for instructional time. The teacher-friendly score reports deliver data quickly, so teachers can:

    • Plan individual instruction
    • Create classroom groups
    • Differentiate instruction
  • Accurate reporting and analytics

    eMPower reporting shows students’ progress toward meeting grade-level expectations—as well as their strengths and needs. With immediate results and dynamic filtering options across a range of reports, eMPower gives educators both holistic and detailed views of student understanding.

    Score reports for parents, teachers, building, and district-level leaders include:

    • Individual student reports
    • Classroom reports
    • School/district summary reports
    • Growth reports

    Lexile-QuantileLogo-sm eMPower Assessments report scale scores at the domain level and proficiency levels at the subscore level to show progress toward meeting grade-level standards. eMPower reports also include Lexile and Quantile levels, to link assessment performance with student skill level and, in turn, with appropriate instructional goals and resources.
