Woodcock Johnson IV - Achievement test kit 

The WJ IV ACHIEVEMENT  includes 20 tests for measuring four broad academic domains: reading, written language, mathematics, and academic knowledge. A completely new configuration, with new tests and clusters, supports a broad range of diagnostic assessment needs for a wide variety of professionals. 
Determination of academic strengths and weaknesses has never been easier. A new comparison of achievement scores to academic knowledge can provide additional information to help determine if a more comprehensive evaluation should be considered.

Intervention Kits

Fountas & Pinnell Levelled Literacy Intervention 

Fountas and Pinnell's products and teachings are rooted in the work of Marie Clay whose meticulous study of the complexity of the reading process, through detailed coding of thousands of readings, showed that when a text is too difficult for the child the process breaks down and the child does not develop inner control of effective actions for processing texts. When the text poses enough challenge, but not too much, the child has opportunities with effective, explicit teaching to build his network of effective problem solving actions. Fountas and Pinnell's goal is to support the child's development of self-initiating actions he will be able to apply to a range of texts of similar difficulty. With daily teaching, the teacher helps the child climb the ladder of text difficulty with success. The goal of guided reading is to bring the child to the level of complex texts appropriate for the grade, in doing so, teaching must begin with where the child is able to engage with some success, so that there is a point of contact, thereby engaging the child's development of a self-extending system for processing texts.
