Valid and Reliable Assessment for All Children

The COR Advantage assessment, developed by HighScope Educational Research Foundation, is a whole-child assessment built on 36 items that are proven by research to best prepare children for school success. With the fewest items of any early childhood assessment and powered by Kaymbu’s user-friendly technology, COR Advantage saves teachers time, allowing them to focus on what matters most.

Assess the Whole Child

The COR Advantage assessment provides a complete picture of child development. Compatible with any developmentally-appropriate curriculum, COR Advantage allows teachers to view children’s development through play and naturally occurring activities. COR Advantage is aligned with state standards in every state, as well as the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework, Common Core Standards for Kindergarten, and HighScope’s Key Developmental Indicators (KDIs).

Real Time Dashboards

All stakeholders can easily access the data they need. Live dashboards provide accurate, up-to-the-minute tracking of student development and provide administrators with snapshots of how children, classrooms, and centers are performing in real-time. Teachers can easily view unassessed items, as well as the items in which children need the most support, guiding lesson planning and scaffolding.

Robust Reporting

Administrators and teachers can analyze child-, classroom-, or program-level data based on the COR Advantage indicators. The reporting suite includes tables and charts to show performance, growth, and completion data. Use the reports to track development over time, identify strengths and areas for growth, and analyze how children are progressing towards Kindergarten-readiness standards. Customize reports by easily filtering by demographic information such as funding source, age, or race.

Inter-Rater Reliability

The free inter-rater reliability process ensures all teachers can enter accurate, valid, and reliable data that administrators can trust for reporting purposes. All teachers who pass the test with at least 80% proficiency will receive certification valid for 3 years.
