My Take
This is great tool for assessing comprehension. It is tightly aligned to CCSS for ELA and a good way to measure student comprehension of text. The fact that the assessments include short response answers from students gives it extra mileage and depth that other assessments don't have. Another benefit is the sample responses for the short response questions helping the teacher to quickly determine the depth of understanding and proficiency.
