With Istation, teachers don't need to spend time analyzing the grades to determine students' study paths or creating intervention lesson plans. The assessment does it all, automatically placing students into individualized paths, in their specific areas of need, at the proper reading level. No other program does that!
Istation not only provides an assessment of individual and classroom capability, it does so in just 30 minutes and makes the scores immediately available. But that's only the beginning.
Over time, Istation assessments are administered monthly — or on demand as needed — to instantly measure students' incremental improvements, independent of grade or age, and continually move them through the curriculum at the optimal pace.
