Actionable Data to Guide Instruction & Intervention
Student Assessments

The routine analysis of data provides insights into where students are in their learning so instruction can be adjusted to meet individual student needs as well as group students based on their progress. Penda’s standards-aligned assessments for grades 3–8, physical science, environmental science, and high school biology are fun and motivating for students to complete and provide rich data that help teachers know where to go next with instruction.

How Penda Supports Data-Driven Instruction

The Science Assessments Students Can’t Wait to Play

Penda assessments are just as fun and motivating for students as our lessons and activities. Unlike traditional assessments, students are challenged to achieve high scores and earn points to unlock virtual worlds, customize their avatars, and more. Hand aligned to each state standard and designed for diagnostic, formative, and summative use, teachers gain valuable insights to guide instruction, develop individualized learning plans, and prepare for statewide and end of course assessments.

Penda Assessment Activities

Meaningful Data to Positively Impact Student Outcomes

Standards-based line-item analysis reports are available for every Penda assessment activity. Teachers and administrators can analyze student progress by standard. Data is aggregated among all students who took the assessment and can be filtered by a specific class period. Clicking on any individual student score reveals the question, possible answer options, and the student’s response. This detailed analysis is invaluable in determining whether specific concepts need to be retaught to the whole class or whether students need small group or individualized instruction in targeted areas.

Monitor Class-, School- and District-Wide Progress

School and district administrators can see how individual students, whole classes, or all the schools across a district or organization are progressing toward standards mastery. This data is useful to support collaboration with teachers about instructional strategies and professional learning to improve student outcomes.
