What assessments does Wit & Wisdom English include?

We include formative and summative assessments in each module. Formative assessments include:

  • Check for Understanding tasks that are administered daily and allow teachers to evaluate students’ progress towards a learning goal.
  • Focusing Question tasks that occur every 8–12 lessons and ask students to synthesize knowledge and skills gained in one section of each module.
  • New Read Assessments that occur at least twice in each module and ask students to apply literacy skills to a new text.

Summative assessments include:

  • End of Module Assessments that ask students to synthesize knowledge and skills from the entire module in the final days of instruction.
  • Our online assessments are not designed to be predictive of students’ performance on an end-of-year state exam.
