Assessment Driven Curriculum

Tools for instruction that emphasize assessing a learner's achievement on standardized tests (particularly based on state standards).
Most education technology tools use data to gauge a learner's abilities. Assessment-driven tools incorporate a hefty dose of assessment based on standardized tests (typically state standardized tests) along with practice drills to improve outcomes on those tests.
These differ from "test prep" programs which are designed to improve performance on either entrance exams (such as the SATs) or qualifying exams (such as board exams for licensed practitioners).
