Scantron Performance Series
The Henry County Board of Education requires schools to conduct progress monitoring via the Scantron Performance Series. These benchmark (Scantron Performance) are taken online to help determine student progress in math, reading, and science (grades 5 and 7). Scores fall in 4 categories: Quartile 1- Below Average; Quartile 2- Low Average; Quartile 3- High Average; Quartile 4- Above Average.
For the 2018/2019 school year, the fall (August) and spring (April) administration of the Scantron Performance Series will be for state accountablility. The Scantron Performance Series is administered in August/September, January, and April.

The Scantron Performance Series is a web-based, computer-adaptive test used for the following:

  • to identify a student’s ability levels and help him or her master important concepts with customized materials
  • to demonstrate academic growth over time
  • to assist teachers in planning instruction through immediate, detailed reports

The Performance Series assessments adjust to a student’s abilities, beginning in relation to a student’s current grade and adapting to a student’s responses as he or she answers each question. Questions get easier when a student answers incorrectly and more challenging when he or she answers correctly. This individualizes every testing experience and more accurately measures a student’s ability, as well as helps determine his or her next steps in the classroom.
