Balanced Assessment Strategy
Combine & Share Tests
Combine Mini-Tests to build larger tests that support formative assessment or copy a shared test that has already been compiled by colleagues from across the district. Once banked, tests can be assigned to a reusable grouping of select students, an entire grade and subject, or a specific roster.
Manage Data & Assign RolesKite Educator Portal can be configured to implement a tiered user role structure that is personalized for your specific organization. This structure allows users to navigate between role settings while controlling access to student data in compliance with FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Acts. We support centralized and decentralized as well as automated and manual management approaches for adding and updating data.
Every student deserves the opportunity to achieve his or her learning potential. We designed the Kite Suite to be customizable and adapt to each user's unique skillset.
Reports & Longitudinal DataView, download, and print fully customizable reports across all organization levels in Educator Portal, including bundled and aggregate reports. Our team can develop brand new reports or integrate your data into existing reporting methods. Already have reports covered? Let us provide the data for you to add to your current report structure.
Educator Portal also provides longitudinal data access to help you understand how students, schools, districts, and instruction match with, and progress across, longer term local initiatives and planning metrics. An example of a student-level report is shown to the right.
Testing Summary Dashboard
A test summary dashboard can be customized to provide key metrics that are critical to stakeholders during testing. Automatically updated multiple times each day, users will see current data embedded right in the dashboard on screen. Alternatively, the data may be downloaded in an extract for simple and easy distribution.
Educator Portal gives you the tools to view, manipulate, and extract the data you need. Test information such as enrollment data, test status, student scores. and much more is securely retrieved based on a user's access level. The applicable utility and detailed quality of each extract was developed with crucial input from educators across the country. Numerous extracts can even be modified and re-uploaded, allowing users to create and manage data for their entire organization.
Student Portal offers clean, secure, intuitive, and student-focused testing interface that supports engaging media and graphics, customized accessibility features, and selectable testing tools. Our testing platform delivers nearly 5,000,000 test sessions each year to students across all 50 US states, its territories, and Canada. During peak test times, up to 30,000 students test concurrently. Kite Student Portal is load tested to support over 200,000. Kite assessments can be completed on a desktop, laptop, iPad, or Chromebook.
Simple Navigation & Adjustable Layout
Use the navigation bar in Student Portal to quickly jump to any question. Flagging a question for further review changes colors in the nav, making it easy to see which items need to be revisited. An adjustable layout allows users to customize their view to improve the quality of their interactive experience with three different display options: passage only, questions only, or passage and questions. In a split screen layout, students see the stimulus and questions together on the same screen. Use the slider bar to adjust the size ratio between the different views to choose the layout that is right for you.

Student Resource and Accommodation Tools
Built with accessibility in mind, Kite Student Portal adapts to each individual's needs. A large array of tools such as magnification, color overlay, calculators, highlighters, and reference materials are available to students directly within the platform. Other tools such as auditory calming, sign language options, and read aloud using a text-to-speech tool can be enabled through a student's PNP profile in Kite Educator Portal.
Equip your tests with built-in accessibility tools.
Individuals should never be hindered by the lack of assistive technology. Administrators can customize the toolbox in Kite Student Portal with predetermined accessibility tools to provide every opportunity for success.
The Kite team at ATS recognized the importance for school districts to effectively communicate student progress with parents and guardians. In order to help districts meet this demand, we worked directly with educators and school district staff to develop Kite Parent Portal, an online platform for parents to view their child's current and historical Kite assessment reports anytime and anywhere.
How It Works
- Schools upload parent email addresses in Educator Portal to connect parents with their student's score reports.
- Parents log in to the secure Parent Portal website using a temporary access code sent to their email address.
- Within the platform, parents can view, download, and print current and historical Kite assessment score reports in each subject and/or assessment program.
