Online measures

mCLASS’s validated online measures are available free of charge to all mCLASS customers. This includes an online reading and comprehension measure, an online decoding measure, mCLASS Vocabulary, and mCLASS Spelling. See more below:

Text Reading Online

With Text Reading Online, students in grades 1–6 will be able to read two texts and answer eight text-dependent comprehension questions from each text, as well as provide responses to text-dependent written comprehension prompts.

Assessment output will inform:

  • Proficiency status on a grade-level text.
  • Information on type of comprehension task (main idea, making inference, etc.).
  • WCPM fluency score.
  • Word analysis on the types of words read incorrectly.
  • Writing score on content and syntax

Decoding Online

With our Decoding Online measure, students in grades 1–6 review multiple choices to select the word that matches the spoken word.

mCLASS Vocabulary

In mCLASS Vocabulary, K–3 students demonstrate their knowledge of grade specific words and their skill at deriving meaning from text. The assessment covers words that are high utility (tier 2) and content specific (tier 3). Depending on grade level, the student may be asked questions about the word, asked to use the word correctly to fill in a blank, or asked to match the word with its definition.

mCLASS Spelling

Finally, with mCLASS Spelling, K–3 students hear a target word selected from a selection of grade-specific words and use letter tiles to spell the word. These words include the phoneme-grapheme correspondences that students at each grade level are expected to learn over the course of a year based on the scopes and sequences of published reading and spelling curricula

At-home packets for summer and beyond

Children doing schoolwork at home

mCLASS Instruction will be aligned to each student, regardless of whether they are ahead of or behind their classmates. For schools using DIBELS® 8th edition, teachers are able to use mCLASS Instruction (based on the latest data available) to download the packet for each child. These activities can be used for at-home learning this summer or during periods of extended remote learning.

Family resources

mCLASS Home Connect

The mCLASS Home Connect website houses resources for parents and caregivers, including at-home lessons organized by skill to help students at home during remote learning. Our mCLASS parent/caregiver letters in English and Spanish ensure that families know how to best support their child.

Frequently asked questions

“What resources should I use on remote days if my students have limited technology access?”
If students have limited or no access to technology during remote learning days, at home-packets and Home Connect resources can be printed in advance and sent home for students to complete during remote learning days.

“What resources should I use for extended remote learning if my students have limited technology access?”
We understand that access to technology is a significant barrier for many of our students. If students have limited or no access to technology during extended periods of remote learning, the mCLASS guides provide alternatives for conducting benchmark assessments, such as assessing by phone. Additionally, at-home learning packets can be printed and sent home for students to continue working on skills.
