Legal Considerations



Correlates with SCANS Foundation Skills. A "Quick-Screen" feature contains sampling of items from each skill area and helps to determine the level at which a learner entering the program is functioning, verify the results of other assessments given the learner, and identify areas where more detailed assessment is needed. In-depth skills assessments range in difficulty from grade levels 2-8. No special training or additional materials are necessary to perform assessments.
