Educational Tutorial Services partners with several organizations throughout the country to achieve our goals. These relationships are instrumental in our success as well as the success of our students. Following are a few examples of the type of partnerships we actively seek:
Achieve is a program designed to forecast how students will score on the standardized achievement test. It identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each individual student. For Reading/Language Arts, content and skills tested are main idea, supporting details, sequencing, compare and contrast, cause and effect, making inferences, drawing conclusions, author’s purpose and plot, summarizing, vocabulary, and library reference skills. For Mathematics, content and skills tested are number sense, operations, measurement, geometry, spatial sense, algebraic analysis, and statistics and probability. The group of educational experts who wrote the test items examined both the state curriculum adapted by the Department of Education and released items from previous used standardized test that the state has used for assessing student achievement. Each test item is carefully designed to align with a state standard as dictated by K-12 grade Reading/Language Arts and Mathematics curriculum.
