The power of our BRIGANCE screening and skills assessment tools rests in the expertise of the examiner. A proficient examiner understands the purpose of the tool used and how best to administer the assessments within the tool. When administered with fidelity, the BRIGANCE tools uncover students’ unique strengths and needs and generate an instructional road map for elevating achievement. Our BRIGANCE Professional Development courses are highly interactive and streamlined, training participants to use the BRIGANCE instruments with fidelity, equipping them to get accurate, actionable results, and sending them off with a sense of confidence and enthusiasm.
