Ballard & Tighe, Publishers released new formal assessment components for Carousel of IDEAS, 4th Edition-an English language development program for elementary grades. Adapted to students' cognitive and literacy levels, there are separate tests for grades K-1 and grades 2-5. The Carousel Testers are achievement tests designed to reveal how well students have mastered the chapter learning objectives so teachers can easily identify areas where some students may need more practice.

The Carousel Testers for grades K-1 focus on listening and speaking skills, including language functions and forms. The Carousel Testers for grades 2-5 assess listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills and consistently test language functions and forms presented in the Carousel program. The Carousel Tester Class Pack for each Carousel set includes an examiner's manual, consumable placement test booklets, and consumable end-of-chapter Testers.

BOSTON (June 20, 2016) – Today, Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone (NYSE: RST) Company, announced the expansion of Lexia’s RAPID Assessment™ to now support students in grades K–2, in addition to its existing support for students in grades 3–12. Developed in partnership with the Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR), RAPID is a computer-adaptive assessment that screens for reading and language skills, identifies instructional needs and focus, and measures skill development and growth. Lexia’s RAPID Assessment minimizes the amount of time spent testing, while maximizing the data provided to inform classroom instruction and school- or district-wide resource allocation. Based on research conducted by FCRR, RAPID measures the skills most predictive of reading success, and uses adaptive technology to quickly and precisely measure student performance. Administered up to three times a year, RAPID provides immediate access to actionable, norm-referenced data and reports, as well as connections to instructional strategies.
