- Grade 5 SSA Prep (focused only on the highly assessed standards)

Penda assessment activities can be assigned to a class, intervention group, or individual learner and can be used for diagnostic, formative, or summative purposes. Standards-based line-item analysis reports are available for every assessment activity. Teachers, school administrators, and district/organization staff have the ability to analyze student progress per screen for any Penda science activity that has been assigned. This is particularly useful when assigning Penda assessment activities, whereas each screen targets a specific standard (shown below). Data is aggregated among all students assigned, and can be filtered by a specific class period. Clicking on any individual student score per screen (for example, Alondra Alvara who scored 0% on SC.8.N.1.1) will reveal the question, possible answer options, and the student's response.


Additional reporting is available for school administrators and district staff through their Penda admin accounts, showing line-item analysis data for any assessment activity assigned across all teachers in a school, or across all schools using Penda in a district or organization.
All Penda Science customers with a school or district subscription have access to the assessment activities, simply by logging into your Penda Science teacher or admin account, then clicking "Activities".
