A brief and modern series of academic achievement screening tests, the ESS is perfect for identifying children “at-risk” for school readiness or learning problems. The math and writing screeners can be group administered, often leading to efficient screening and scoring of an entire class in about an hour.

Concurrent validity studies show excellent validity at all age levels.
