This guide provides valuable information for school leaders as they develop a comprehensive assessment plan as a critical element for preventing reading difficulties. The general principles outlined in this document, such as the early identification of students who are struggling in learning to read, are all based on scientific findings, but the detailed recommendations for implementation derived from practical experiences in helping many school leaders implement successful plans.
This guide can facilitate assessment planning and use of data to drive instruction in schools that are implementing School Improvement Grants (SIG) and/or the College and Career Ready Standards (including Common Core State Standards).
