Measuring Learning Loss
Addressing pandemic-related learning loss is critical for students. Teachers are eager to understand where students are academically and what their instructional needs are after interruptions to teaching and learning.

When students return to class full time, states and districts can use DRC BEACON as a short, reliable, and affordable assessment of current student achievement.

Through-Year Testing
DRC BEACON is strongly linked to state summative tests. With this alignment, states have the option to move away from a single end-of-year summative test to shorter interim tests given throughout the year.

When used as a through-year assessment, DRC BEACON provides instructionally relevant data when you need it during the school year, while measuring the grade-level achievement expected of a summative assessment.
