MCI Assessment


Students take the MCI Pre- and Post-Tests: Placement and Progress Monitoring Using The Lexile Framework® for Reading at the beginning of their MCI intervention and at the end of each level. Short, three-minute Maze Tests occur biweekly for more frequent progress monitoring. And Unit Skill Tests check progress with the focus skills at the beginning, middle, and end of each unit. Optional assessments are also available.
