Formative assessments in early education are excellent tools for instructional leaders. A well-aligned system of benchmarks and curriculum is essential in K-grade 3. Educational Vistas has developed such benchmarks and integrates the results into the EVI DataMate management system. Districts are provided immediate access to results and superb reports that profile individual student progress. Reports on miscue analysis, classroom profiles, disaggregated data and comparative reports are just several of the many reports available to districts.
