The EDSERIES is a standardized battery of ability and achievement tests and has the most comprehensive coverage of all the STS tests. It permits teachers, counselors, and administrators to evaluate a student from the broadest possible perspective.
A school may use the EDSERIES on a lease/score basis or it may purchase testing materials. If a school chooses to buy EDSERIES testing materials, the EDSERIES Standard Scoring Service must be purchased separately, or the school may order the School Scoring Kit for local scoring.
Identifies Prime Counseling Problems
The results obtained from the EDSERIES are carefully analyzed in order to help teachers and administrators identify students who may need counseling because of conflicts among achievement, ability, future plans, and school interests.
The EDSERIES battery is comprised of seven subtests: Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Quantitative Skills and Verbal Skills. Future Plans and School Interests sections are also included in the battery. These subtests can be administered in one of four ways*:
• Complete Battery (Quantitative Skills, Verbal Skills, Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies)
• Core Achievement Battery (Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies)
• Cognitive & Basic Skills (Quantitative Skills, Verbal Skills, Reading, Language Arts & Mathematics)
• Basic Skills Battery (Reading, Language Arts, and Mathematics)**
*Single subtests can be optioned as well. A minimum scoring service charge is $25.00 for all EDSeries levels.
**School Interests and Future Plan Sections are available in grades 3 and up.
