GRSLA uses low-stakes assessments to measure the effectiveness of our programs. We track and monitor these results to ensure that our programs continue to support our students. 

COR Advantage

To assess student progress during our PreK program, we use the Child Observation Record (COR) Advantage, an observation-based tool that is used throughout Rochester’s early childhood community during the academic year. A student’s final COR score from the end of the academic year serves as the pre-test, and the end-of-summer COR score serves as the post-test. The comparison between pre-test and post-test scores allow us to track student progress in eight developmental categories (such as math, language, and science) and to determine kindergarten readiness. The results of the COR are published annually in our summer RECAP reports, showing that our PreK program reduces summer learning loss and increases kindergarten readiness.
