ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS, K-12
We have a wealth of experience crafting a variety of item types for English Language Arts (ELA) assessments.
Our ELA content specialists have worked with technology-enhanced items in addition to traditional selected-response and constructed-response items. Our ELA teams work to ensure that every assessment item we develop clearly aligns to the specified learning objective (such as the Common Core State Standards) and targets the appropriate Depth of Knowledge level. A Pass also develops literary and informational reading passages that are used as stimuli for assessment items. We write passages on a wide variety of topics, and we design each of these texts to support the creation of challenging test items that effectively measure a range of skills.

We believe that the first step of many successful projects is a high quality storyboard. Our storyboards are developed through collaborative efforts between subject matter experts, instructional designers and writers. Of course, we are always happy to include our clients in the collaborative effort, as you deem appropriate.
We understand how important it is that test items test what they say they do. Teachers, principals, districts, and governments rely on test results to better understand how education is working, and, most importantly, students’ lives are impacted by the results. This is why we have highly qualified writers, developmental editors, and artists working together to create assessments that meet the highest standards of alignment, accuracy, and sensitivity. Accurate test results mean better education.
We develop complete, organized lesson plans in accordance with your objectives. Created by experienced teachers, our lesson plans provide useful tools to instructors preparing for class time, including detailing of educational goals, teacher scripts, time management, and learning materials.
