our most frequently asked questions
How does edSpring work?
edSpring supports effective data-based decision making in schools, and helps educators create and manage the multi-tiered system of supports needed to help all students thrive.
Nightly updates keep data current so that educators have a single spot to access test scores, behavior, attendance, and grades data for students. Intuitive, question-driven reports are offered for building, grade level, class, and individual student growth across domains. For students receiving additional assistance, educators can monitor progress and track intervention participation.
What assessments are included?
edSpring offers online and paper-pencil based Curriculum-Based Measures for screening and progress monitoring in early literacy and reading. Access to these measures is included in the annual subscription price for edSpring. These measures have strong ratings by the National Center for Intensive Intervention, so your team can have confidence in the results. You can also import data from nearly any standardized norm-referenced, criterion-referenced or teacher made formative/summative assessment to edSpring to keep everything in one spot.
How are assessment targets set?
In edSpring districts can determine grade level and seasonal target scores for any assessment being used. If a test vendor has provided target or cut scores, edSpring will pre-load these for you, however districts can always elect to utilize locally determined target scores instead, and the targets of the district’s choice will be shown in edSpring. In addition to criterion-referenced targets, edSpring also offers the option of color coding reports based on local normative outcomes.
