It also helps teachers easily access appropriate assessment items based on state standards and Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) that can be used to build both formative and practice comprehensive assessment versions. Now instructors can identify student performance gaps and indicators of learning loss, while also providing educators with the proper support to easily monitor student academic progress. School and district administrators who want to expand their access to pre-made content can also upgrade to the full subscription-based PowerSchool Item and Assessment bank, which consists of an even larger collection of ready-made items, common formative assessments, and summative benchmark assessments built to inform instruction.
