ACTS is pleased to announce our selection of Data Recognition Corp/CTB as our standardized test vendor, beginning with the spring 2015 testing season. ACTS will implement CTB’s TerraNova®, Third Edition to replace the existing SAT/10 assessments- which are no longer being normed. ACTS has been doing its due diligence in determining whether we would continue with our present SAT/10 assessments. After careful consideration TerraNova 3 was selected and now offers:
*High quality, technically sound tests that minimize bias and maximize accuracy.
*Great design, innovation, technical excellence, and content.
*Current norms derived from a national empirical study that mirror your students.
*Online reporting and analysis with easy access to achievement data to drive instruction.
*Under the terms of this 5 year agreement, Data Recognition Corp/CTB will provide the test materials, scoring, home report, and online reporting system for $19.50/student. This amount includes shipping with the exception of international schools.
*Robust professional development from Data Recognition Corp/CTB that includes information about test administration, managing test materials, understanding reports, analyzing data, and connecting test results to inform decisions about school improvement and instruction as well as research-based best practices.
We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Data Recognition Corp/CTB, the leader in the assessment market. Contact our office for additional information to assist you in making a smooth transition to TerraNova 3.
