Helpful for every teacher and student, the Screener is a free, easy-to-administer, whole-class assessment that helps educators and specialists assess critical and measurable skills that students need for success.

  • Includes both formative and summative assessments to identify critical gaps in literacy and handwriting skills (letter memory, reversals, and sentence structure)
  • Helps educators better focus handwriting instruction
