This guide, a companion volume to two other publications from the Center on Instruction, Academic Literacy Instruction for Adolescents and Improving Literacy Instruction in Middle and High Schools: A Guide for Principals, provides information about the key elements of a comprehensive assessment plan to improve literacy instruction for adolescents. It also shows examples of assessments and assessment systems currently in use or under development to improve literacy instruction for students in grades 4-12.
This guide can facilitate assessment planning and use of data to drive instruction in schools that are implementing School Improvement Grants (SIG) and/or College and Career Ready Standards (including Common Core State Standards).
