The Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment Systems

The Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment Systems is used to determine students’ independent and instructional reading levels. Teachers can observe student reading behaviors one-on-one, engage in comprehension conversations that go beyond retelling and make informed decisions that connect assessment to instruction.

Measure of Academic Progress (MAP)

Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) creates a personalized assessment experience by adapting to each student’s learning level. Here at The Galloway School, we use the student data for both a "check-in" with individual students and our curriculum as a whole. See more by clicking here.


The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) is a group-administered K-12 assessment intended to estimate students’ learned reasoning and problem-solving abilities through a battery of verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal test items. The CogAT is one of several tests used in the United States to help teachers or other school staff make student placement decisions for gifted education programs.
