LASS is a multifunctional assessment system that students find challenging and entertaining. The program employs the unique 'adaptive algorithm' developed by Lucid that ensures assessments are as brief as practicable without losing their accuracy. There are two versions of the software available, one for Junior school (age 8 - 11) and one for Secondary school (age 11 - 15). The assessment modules in LASS have been designed and scientifically validated for pupils in both these age ranges

LASS is very easy to administer. Students require only minumum supervision while doing tests. LASS enables teachers to identify students with dyslexia (specific learning difficulty) but it has many other important functions as well, including: screenshot from Lucid LASS package screenshot from Lucid LASS package screenshot from Lucid LASS package

Results are provided in standard score form, with centiles, standard deviation units and age-equivalents, calibrated against standardised norms in single year age bands. Detailed printouts, including Lucid's unique Graphical Profile, can be displayed and printed at the click of the mouse. Teachers can add their own comments on the printouts or the reports can be imported into word processors or spreadsheets if necessary. Results clearly show childrens's strengths and weaknesses in comparison with national norms and make it easier to spot students who are underperforming. LASS comes with a comprehensive Teacher's Manual packed with valuable information for teachers and administrators, including interpretation guidelines, teaching recommendations, third party resources and case studies.
