    Capti Assess measures the five foundational reading skills and reading comprehension. The five skills are, Word Recognition and Decoding, Vocabulary, Morphology, Sentence Processing, and Reading Efficiency.

  • How long does Capti Assess take to complete?

    Capti Assess can be taken one subtest at a time, all at once, or in some combination. All except 1 subtest take about 7-9 minutes to complete, counting the time to read the instructions and do a few practice questions. Reading comprehension subtest takes a bit longer, about 30 minutes. All subtests together will take about 45-75 minutes to complete, depending on a student. This time investment enables Capti Assess to be the most thorough and accurate diagnostic assessment to date.

  • Does Capti Assess align with Common Core

    The Common Core has standards for foundational skills up until grade 5. The standards cover constructs related to Capti Assess including decoding, word recognition, fluency, and morphology. Capti Assess augments the standards by allowing us to measure the 5 foundational skills beyond grade 5 (where the common core ends). Failure to measure foundational skills beyond grade 5, is a potential failure to detect key sources of the problem.
