Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA)
The annual Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA)
is a standards-based, criterion-referenced assessment used
both to measure a student's attainment of the academic standards
and to determine the degree to which school programs enable
students to attain proficiency in these standards. Every Pennsylvania
student in 3rd through 8th grade.
Merit’s Language Arts and math software programs correlate
to the Pennsylvania's Academic Standards and can help students
prepare for the State tests. The content and format of Merit’s
programs can help students develop and strengthen their test-taking
skills as well as their reading, writing and math skills.
Merit reading software has been proven -- through rigorous,
scientifically based research -- to increase both student
reading comprehension and standardized test scores. Merit
research study findings reveal that education software is
an effective tool to improve test scores and academic performance.
