Frequent supplemental, ‘informal reading assessment’ can identify your child’s grade level reading ability and highlight areas that need strengthening in the reading process. Monitoring reading level and reading growth can help your child become a successful reader.
At a minimum, reading screens should be administered twice a year; once at the beginning of the school year and once at the end. This identifies weak areas in a child’s reading process and allows for tutoring to strengthen these weak areas.
Reading assessment begins with Grade 1 through 3. This allows for early intervention to address any reading difficulties. Monitoring the reading process begins at birth and continues through adult.
The time to allow for a screening session can vary depending upon the age of your child. The design of the course allows you to complete the assessment sections at your child’s pace. The whole assessment does not have to be completed in one session. The format for the assessment follows current research based standards for reading assessment.
NOTE: The screen administered is not a clinical diagnosis.
