ERB Milestones Assessments

For Grades 3-8

Today's classrooms don't need more testing, they need more meaningful testing. That’s why we designed ERB Milestones Assessments to provide a quick way to administer an interim assessment.

ERB Milestones offers educators regular, short assessment touchpoints across each school year to provide the real-time data that educators need to guide instruction and design learning interventions without occupying a lot of valuable classroom time. Because testing schedules should work around classroom needs, not vice versa.

Meet Milestones from ERB

ERB Milestones interim assessments for students in Grades 3-8 cover Reading Comprehension and Mathematics, and are an extension of our time-tested Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP), offering educators consistency, flexibility, and timeliness. 


Leverages the CTP independent school vertical scores, norms, and standards many schools already use for enhanced validity and familiar score interpretation.


Reading and math tests administered in 40-minute modules per subject can be administered at various points during the school year—whenever works best for each classroom.


ERB 360 Access provides educators with student data in real-time, making it easier than ever to not only track student progress but also use assessment data meaningfully.

ERB Milestones cover Mathematics and Reading Comprehension
Why? Because ERB members told us these were the subject areas most important to them for an interim assessment. The CTP provides our full battery of subtests; Milestones were designed to be agile yet powerful to keep educators and families informed and classrooms moving forward.
Administered online for speed and ease of use
ERB Milestones were designed for the 21st century classroom. Subtests only take 40 minutes to complete, and scores are returned within 24-48 hours. Going digital makes this speed possible. Paper tests take longer to complete (more work for students) and longer to score (more work for us). No thank you!
Can be used with or without CTP
ERB Milestones were designed as a complement to CTP to track student progress leading up to or coming out of that summative assessment. But for schools that prefer not to test the full CTP, you do have the flexibility to use the shorter Milestones multiple times across the year.
Designed for classroom or at-home testing
ERB Milestones Assessments can be administered in-school or to students remotely, with easy check-in procedures and flexible scheduling options. Students can test individually or in groups, at the same time or on different days.

Whole child. Whole potential.

With the ERB Whole Child Solution, you can bundle our assessments of learning achievement (CTP + Milestones) with our Check-In Survey on student well-being at school and SelfWise, our student self-report inventory on social and emotional skills.

"The current state of educational technology allows for more frequent assessment touchpoints, which creates a better system for understanding student achievement and taking timely action to address their academic needs.”

—Tom Rochon, President, ERB

So I've done the testing.

What do I do with all of my assessment data?

Meet ERB 360 Access

Dynamic data exploration for the modern educator.

With ERB 360 Access, educators administering CTP or Milestones Assessments have a powerful new tool for turning assessment data into actionable insights. Our intuitive platform makes it easy to customize a range of reports in seconds. More important, our graphic interface makes it simple for anyone to make meaning of their assessment data–no advanced statistics required. In ERB 360 Access, educators can quickly:
Compare student performance against other students of interest (multiple available norm groups).
Track learning progress over time.
Analyze individual student and group performance.
Identify learning gaps on specific content strands and domain areas.

And soon, we'll even be able to predict student performance. Let's measure better, together.

A better way to measure student progress.

Testing Options

Test Up To Three Times A Year

ERB Milestones are administered a maximum of three times a year when used as a standalone assessment—in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. When paired with CTP, Milestones are administered twice a year—in the Fall and Winter or in the Winter and Spring depending on when CTP is administered.

Bundle with CTP

Take your testing program to the next level by administering both Milestones and CTP. CTP is an annual assessment that covers a full battery of subjects to complement Milestones' shorter, interim touchpoints for more targeted interventions and better curriculum design.

In-School or At-Home

For educators seeking additional flexibility, including homeschoolers or classes engaged in distance learning, we offer CTP testing both at-home and in-school. This option lets you securely assess your students' learning progress from home, keeping them (and you) safe and academically on-track.
