Riverside Early Assessments of Learning® (REAL®) by Dr. Bruce A. Bracken is a comprehensive assessment suite designed to ensure school readiness as well as provide reliable information for effective planning and targeted daily instruction for children from birth to age 7:11.
The REAL platform is a data management website for gathering, storing, and reporting on a portfolio of information for the children in your organization. REAL's web-based resources, which include online and print format administration, interpretation, and reporting options, provide results instantly and allow for an ongoing, longitudinal view of a child's development at the individual, classroom, building, district/agency and state levels. REAL is appropriate for use in IDEA, Head Start and Kindergarten Readiness environments.
Information can be shared across platforms and educational settings, and the flexible, user-friendly data collection and administration tools allow for individualized or group instruction plans that benchmark progress on key developmental and academic standards to ensure growth or consider intervention. REAL observational content is available in English and Spanish.
