Accelerate Learning This Fall with the Texas FastBridge Early Literacy Pilot

Jump-starting learning this fall will be critical, and FastBridge, an Illuminate Education assessment solution, can serve as an essential tool to accelerate learning. Two FastBridge assessments, earlyReading and CBMreading, ensure Texas educators have the most efficient and effective tools to screen and monitor students for early literacy. Assessments are available in both online and printable formats to support in person, blended, and distance learning environments.

By using Curriculum-Based Measures (CBM) for screening and progress monitoring, teachers receive precise data to evaluate where students are relevant to grade-level expectations in order to get them back on track.

earlyReading

earlyReading is an assessment suite of twelve subtests that screen students’ foundational skills in the core areas of phonemic awareness, phonics and fluency. The subtests typically administered in grades PreK-1 are in English and Spanish and may be used for screening and frequent progress monitoring at any grade. Each assessment is designed to be highly efficient and inform instruction.

CBMreading

CBMreading is a one-minute assessment of oral reading fluency that can be used for universal screening in English or Spanish, and for frequent progress monitoring for grades 1-8. Substantial research demonstrates that CBMreading is a robust indicator of reading development and a useful predictor of student performance on state tests.

FAST Projection™ Line

With the unplanned school closures that occurred this spring, time is more valuable than ever. The FAST Projection™ line gives a prediction of future student performance in just six data points compared with the twelve data points most solutions require. This ensures weeks or months aren’t wasted on interventions that aren’t working and allows for the necessary changes and adjustments needed while tracking student growth.

Focus on the Whole Child with SAEBRS

SAEBRS

The Social, Academic, and Emotional Behavior Risk Screener (SAEBRS) identifies students grades K-12 who are at-risk for academic, social, and/or emotional behaviors. SAEBRS can also universally screen by class, grade or school to identify trends that may need class-wide attention.
