Capti Assess with ETS ReadBasix (RISE/SARA) equips teachers and educational leaders with essential data to target instruction where it’s most needed. Capti Assess provides instant reports on the performance of individual students as well as student groups to inform RTI/MTSS strategies. You can rest assured knowing that the reports deliver information from a psychometrically sound assessment grounded in the Science of Reading.
ReadBasix is a real diagnostic assessment of the 5 foundational reading skills, and basic reading comprehension that provides accurate and consistent data grounded in the Science of Reading. From its inception, ReadBasix’s top design priority was accuracy and coverage of all key reading skills. Review ReadBasix research publications for details.
ReadBasix scale scores are vertically-aligned making them directly comparable across grades and subtests. This makes it possible to accurately track student progress over the years, and directly compare performance of student groups in different grade levels.
Progress monitor your students using ReadBasix at regular intervals, then review detailed group statistics, or dig deeper into the performance of individual students with charts, tables, and performance explanations of each metric. Compare classes, schools, or custom student groups, explore performance of a single group, or review a single student’s progress over time.
Each of the 6 subtests in ReadBasix can be taken separately or in combination, saving a lot of time in the process. Screen elementary school students with the vocabulary and morphology subtests within 15 minutes, screen middle and high school students with the reading comprehension subtest in up to half an hour, or identify students that require support with the whole battery of subtests.
Uncover any foundational reading skills that might be limiting reading progress. Access relevant, level-appropriate, and evidence-based instructional recommendations for each skill. Learn each student's relative strengths and suggested areas of growth, understand how to leverage a student’s strengths to increase reading skills.
View reports online or printed, and export data to a PDF or an EXCEL spreadsheet. Whether you are a teacher, a school administrator, or a researcher, you will find all the data you need in the reports. And if something important is missing, let us know, and we will add it!
Scale score ranges from 190-310. The score is vertically scaled and integrated across grades 3-12 to allow for cross-grade score comparisons. Scores are split into performance quadrants: weak, low average, high average, and strong.
The grade equivalent score describes a student's performance in relation to the performance of typical students at a specific grade level. The scores are split into 3 bands: at or above grade level, 1 grade level below, and 2+ grade levels below.
Aggregate of ReadBasix results are used to calculate an overall reading skill profile, and are split into 3 categories: Low, Medium, High. Students whose results match recognized patterns are classified into 10 notable profiles.
ReadBasix is a nationally normed assessment. Percentile scores allow for comparing students to their peers in the same age group, and are split into customizable RTI tier recommendations.
A Lexile reading measure provides a numeric representation of a student’s reading ability that can be used to match readers with texts or compare student’s performance across reading assessments from different providers.
There exist cumulatively over 160 data points for every full ReadBasix assessment (6 subtests). A complete list is available in the appendix section of ReadBasix Teacher’s manual.
