DRC's LAS links Online is the integrated suite of English language proficiency assessments and instructional tools designed to strengthen the English Language Development program.
With LAS Links Online you can utilize the LAS Links® and WIDA standards alignment along with student performance data on LAS Links to pinpoint areas of student strengths and weaknesses well before ACCESS testing, allowing for targeted and meaningful instruction for each student.
Generate student language proficiency reports as well as student academic language scores in Math, Science, Technical Subjects, Social Studies, History, and Language Arts, including longitudinal reporting between grades and year-over-year.
Support the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS), WIDA, and ACTFL standards by bridging the gap between language proficiency and academic success.
Aligned to the WIDA Standards and delivered via the same online platform as the WIDA ACCESS (DRC’s INSIGHT), LAS Links® Online can be used to monitor student progress in acquiring English language skills throughout the school year in Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.
Data Recognition Corporation (DRC) is pleased to provide Pennsylvania Intermediate Units, Districts, and schools the LAS Links Online Assessments as well as scoring and reporting services through a statewide consortium partnership. DRC’s LAS Links Online assessment series includes English test forms, Forms C&D for each grade span , K–1, 2–3, 4–5, 6–8, and 9–12. LAS Links English Forms C&D are aligned to the WIDA standards and will be utilized as a progress monitoring solution to support classroom instruction as well as preparation for students taking the WIDA ACCESS test.
Pricing structure for LAS Links Online will be dependent upon a minimum of a 2,500 student participation level across PAIU to establish the best pricing scenario for 2019-2020 school year, which includes all 29 Intermediate Units and all school entities in the Commonwealth of PA. If the minimum purchase of 2,500 students is not met by June 30th, 2019, intermediate units and district purchases would not be conducted through IU12, but through DRC at standard shelf pricing. It is optimal for IU's and districts to purchase as a consortium, which will provide an approximate savings of 35% off of standard shelf pricing (equaling a purchase price of $34.00 a student).
