    I suppose that you are referring to the teacher evaluation system in Illinois. If you are seeking to show student growth, using a paper rSkills Test and then the computer test might work as long as you use the same form of the test both times. I would think that SRI results would be more informative than the rSkills Tests. Many teachers use SRI results to show student growth. Dee Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
