GRADE Testing

The GRADEā„¢ (Group Reading Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation) is a diagnostic reading test that determines what developmental skills students Pre-K through 12th grade have mastered and where they need instruction or intervention. And GRADE helps educators with the recommended instruction through correlated follow-up materials. GRADE is group-administered, norm-referenced, and based on scientific research. GRADE provides the components educators need to accurately and efficiently assess reading competencies. 

At Vanguard Community School, students in Grades 3-12 are tested using the GRADE assessment in September and June.
