NYSED Lead Scoring Entity
Woman-owned Business Enterprise
EVI has scored NYS assessments and reported results since 2001 and the start of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation. During this period, it has markedly expanded its scorer base, experience, and expertise. Today, there are hundreds of certified teachers working for EVI who provide this service. It is interesting to note that their mean educational experience is greater than 20 years, and the aggregated experience exceeds half a century. Also, EVI scorers have unique experiences beyond that of the classroom which includes administrators, college professors, and authors. All of the scorers, of course, meet NYS criteria for the purpose of assisting schools in the scoring of mandated assessments.

The reports provide a link to the NYS learning standards and related Performance Indicators (PIs) through the coding of each test item within the summary reports for each subject and grade tested. This report feature supports the challenge of curriculum alignment. If school districts are to improve student performance continuously, they need to have access to timely data. The EVI report formats are easy to read and apply the information gleaned for improved performance. Our timely reports, accessible within weeks, not months, serve to bring about targeted intervention and continuous improvement.
