CPAA Provides Essential Data Without More Work for Teachers

Sister Colleen Therese Smith, A.S.C.J.
Principal of Our Lady of Pompeii School
New York City, New York

A school implementing both the CPAA and an in-development sensory screener by Children’s Progress finds the assessments meet teacher needs.

Our Lady of Pompeii School in New York City is one of the nearly 30 schools involved with a Children’s Progress research project funded by the National Institute for Child Health and Development of the National Institutes of Health. Our Lady of Pompeii School is implementing the language arts and mathematics academic assessment for three academic years.

According to Principal Sister Colleen Therese Smith, "As a school serving a diverse student body in New York City, we are always looking for new technologies that can support our teaching in a way that addresses the full range of the students' learning needs. The Children's Progress Assessment provides useful assessment data without additional work for my teachers, and it is very engaging for the kids.”

The Children’s Progress research project aims to develop and validate a patented, computer-delivered vision and hearing screen for children in Pre-K to Grade 3. The project will also develop technology to integrate the data from the sensory assessment with the data from the Children’s Progress language arts and mathematics academic assessment into a single report – enabling educators to examine potential causes of children’s learning difficulties.

This New York school is using both the computer-delivered vision and hearing screen and the Children’s Progress’ language arts and mathematics assessments.  According to the Principal, “We look forward to the future years of the project when the Children's Progress vision and hearing screeners will give us even more information about student development.”
