Give your child(ren) the gift of reading.
Research provides evidence that specific early literacy concepts can predict young students' later reading achievement . These reading concepts include letter knowledge, phonemic awareness, decoding, fluency, and comprehension. An effective reading program includes assessments of all of these concepts for several purposes.
The first purpose is to identify skills that need review. Assessments provides teachers with information on what skills students have and have not mastered. It is needed to help teachers know the skill levels of their students, since students have varying experiences and knowledge.
Secondly, the teacher can learn which students need review before covering additional content and which students are ready to move forward.
The third purpose is to guide teacher instruction. By consistently assessing, a teacher can make informed decisions about what instruction is appropriate for each student.
The final purpose is to demonstrate the effectiveness of instruction. The information gained from assessment allows teachers to know if all students are mastering the content covered. Therefore, the information gained from assessment allows a teacher to create appropriate instruction for their students.
Additionally, assessment is to provide teachers with information on how instruction can be improved for each student.
