Critical Elements of Reading Assessment - Elementary School

Diagnostic Measures

Diagnostic tests are used to measure one or more critical reading skills. They are designed to provide a more precise and detailed picture of the full range of a student's skill and knowledge in order to plan instruction more precisely.

Outcome Measures

Outcome assessments are given at the end of the school year to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the reading program and to evaluate progress toward meeting the goal of leaving no child behind in reading.

Using Assessment to Inform Instruction

Data from reading assessments should be used frequently by teachers to plan for and deliver reading instruction to students.

Indicators of Effectiveness

Data can be used to determine the effectiveness of your Core Reading Program and your interventions. These data should be used to guide instruction and intervention programs.
