Research-Based Innovations Deliver Results in Half the Time

Our Common Core-aligned CBM probes apply cutting-edge research and development on conditional probability. The FAST Projection™ line uses our patent-pending algorithm to deliver actionable data in half the time as other systems. As a result, educators can make modifications to instruction earlier and accelerate student learning faster.

Test with Confidence

All our curriculum based measures are supported by significant educational research from Dr. Theodore J. Christ and his research team at the University of Minnesota to ensure validity and reliability.
