Assessments for Success!
Accessible assessments – say that five times fast!

Other Kinds of Assessments
While not considered an academic diagnostic assessment, The Barraga Visual Efficiency Program (BVEP) evaluates the visual efficiency of, and provides available methods of instruction for, students with low vision who have ocular impairments and who have achieved cognitive developmental skills at or beyond the 3-year-old level. Teachers can also use the Barraga website to record their assessments and evaluations.
