- Assessment scores entered in CALIS will automatically generate an EFL. The system also calculates subsequent scores that are required for students to complete the level and advance. There are also validation rules for dates and alternating version of tests.
- Programs have access to real time data via a menu of reports that include NRS tables, goal setting, testing and attendance reports. All reports have an extensive filtering mechanism including gender, class, EFL Level that allows for further analysis.
