COR Advantage

Observation-based child assessment.

How does COR Advantage drive strong child outcomes?

We help you turn data into action.

COR Advantage is built on 36 items that best prepare children for school success. With the fewest items of any early childhood assessment, COR saves teachers time and keeps them focused on what matters most. Teachers capture and record child development in the COR Advantage online tool and then use that valuable insight to create individualized lesson plans and detailed reports on child and classroom progress. The online tool’s built-in support increases scoring accuracy, delivering consistent data administrators can rely on to meaningfully guide their program to the next level.

  2. Social and Emotional Development

COR Advantage measures 34 items across these 8 major areas of growth and development, with two additional items specifically designed to support English language learning. And because COR Advantage focuses on development rather than age, it is appropriate for children with special needs.
