Pearson System of Courses Math and Literacy Assessment

The Pearson System of Courses Math and Literacy Programs aim to authentically measure student understanding and leverage technology for a more balanced approach. Formative assessments offer continual real-time feedback to reduce major learning obstacles. Rather than a do-or-die testing experience, digital notebooks, peer work, teacher conferences, rubrics, and self-assessments create a supportive environment.
