FAST Assessment

  • One of our primary goals in our district is to provide high quality instruction that ensures academic growth for every student. We are implementing the first phase of a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS). One component of MTSS is to have an assessment system that gives teachers timely feedback in order for them to be better able to differentiate instruction in the classroom and provide targeted instruction for struggling students as well as for  students at standard and above.

    The San Diego Unified School District utilizes a variety of assessments including a reading assessment called FastBridge. All students in grades 1-8 will take a Fastbridge computer adaptive reading (aReading) test three times a year. The aReading test is taken on the computer and are adaptive. That means that the difficulty of the questions change based on how students answer test questions. Questions are aligned to Common Core State Standards and are nationally normed. The score reports will be available immediately for teachers.

  • Like all assessments, these measures are just one tool that teachers use to screen students, monitor progress, and measure growth over time. Results from aReading will supplement the day-to-day assessments teachers use in the classroom, providing teachers with additional information to help all students grow academically.
