Assessment doesn't have to be overwhelming.

Introducing the ELS.

In this era of standards and accountability, we understand the anxiety educators feel when they hear the word "assessment."  But by focusing on key aspects of learning, assessment can be a practical tool for understanding a child's development and informing instruction.  The ELS (Early Learning Scale) provides teachers & administrators with the tools they need to assess all students--in a concise, manageable manner that uses rich data to improve learning and quality of instruction at the same time.
