Who: Grades 3-8

Scantron's Performance Series is a computer-adaptive, online assessment. Alabama has adopted Performance Series as its interim state assessment for grades 3-8 for accountability, while planning for a state-owned summative assessment continues.  Performance Series assessments are aligned to Alabama's College- and Career-Ready standards, as well as to Common Core standards. The results show a student's scaled score and where that score falls in terms of grade-level achievement. The initial fall scaled score is used as a baseline for measuring growth, and growth targets for spring are immediately reported to the teacher and the student so they know how much the student needs to grow to stay on track.
