FastBridge aims to offer the best research-based assessment and decision-making tools for educators. As new tools are developed and researched, they are made available to users in a Lab phase. This Lab phase allows users the opportunity to preview these tools and provide feedback as well as allows the FastBridge research team to conduct additional analysis of data collected during the Lab phase. Only once a Lab tool has been confirmed as fully ready for widespread use will it be endorsed as appropriate for instructional decision-making in schools.
A list of assessments in the Lab phase can be found in the FastBridge Knowledge Base in an article titled “Assessments by Level” (published July 9, 2017). Following our core value of transparency included below are the known issues for the measures in the Lab phase. This list contains the Lab-related items that are believed to affect a number of users and which may have a noticeable impact on usability or functionality. FastBridge Learning is working to address these issues, with priority given to issues that do not have workarounds and those which significantly impact assessing students or using assessment results. The list will be updated weekly during fall, winter, and spring as items are addressed.
We thank you for your partnership and feedback on these Lab measures. We encourage you to participate in the Lab process by submitting any issues or suggestions by logging into FastBridge and clicking on the “Support” link at the top of the window. Together, we make this Lab measures better, with the goal of eventually entering mainstream use in FastBridge.
