Strongly Correlated to Commonly Used Assessments

InSight is a valid and reliable assessment that was created under the direction and guidance of leading reading and assessment researchers. InSight is strongly correlated to multiple state assessments as well as other commonly used assessments. These findings indicate that Reading Plus can serve as a key component in a school’s literacy assessment.

The Only Assessment That Measures Motivation

Research shows that students’ attitudes and mindsets play an important role in learning. During InSight, students respond to statements about reading that help to create a picture of how they see themselves as readers.
