Parents Overview

As a parent, your child’s education is a top priority. Since 1927 ERB has made the education of children our top priority too. ERB’s assessments provide a powerful, objective lens that allow our member schools to look deeply at the current skills of their students, and access information that assists teachers as they work step-by-step to foster academic growth. ERB also provides admission assessments that help many of our schools build their community of learners and invite applicants to join the learning community that is right for them. And we offer Pathways to Learning, online instructional tools to support student learning. As a trusted partner in education, we offer schools a robust range of services and resources to enrich your child’s development and prepare your child for a bright future.  


Please review the descriptions and guides that are designed to help you to understand the assessments and online instructional tools that your schools may use. We also suggest that you take a look at our Pathways to Learning programs in Writing (WPP) and Vocabulary (Word Voyage) and consider “bringing them home” to assist you as you support your child.
