Universal screener

Universal screener - quick, low-cost, repeatable tests of age-appropriate skills for every student. Schools typically administer universal screeners to all students three times a year. These assessments provide two important pieces of information. First, they provide evidence about how well the core curriculum and instruction are working in the school. Second, universal screening identifies those students who may not be making expected progress and who may need additional diagnostic assessment and/or intervention. Universal screening is part of the Response to Intervention process. Curriculum-based measurements are popular universal screeners.
