Help Your Students Find the Best Path Forward

DRC BEACON is an interim assessment for grades 3–8 that helps teachers identify student learning needs, measure progress, and achieve growth throughout the school year.

DRC BEACON sheds light on where a student is today, what a student needs to learn tomorrow, and how you can help them get there.
