Schoolwide's Complete Assessment Solutions have been carefully designed to help teachers
monitor student progress and support effective literacy instruction that meets students' fluid and
differentiated learning needs. The data gleaned from these assessments will inform teachers'
instructional decisions, such as placing students in appropriate guided reading groups and
determining the focus of whole-group, small-group, and individual instruction.

TYPES OF LITERACY ASSESSMENTS
Performance-based running records and comprehension assessments mirror real-world literacy tasks
as students are asked to read authentic texts and discuss and/or write about their thinking.
Diagnostic measures gather additional information about each student's acquisition of important
literacy skills and strategies that inform their reading performance (e.g., word knowledge,
phonological awareness, phonics skills).
Invaluable kid-watching tools and student surveys provide further insights
about students' literacy habits and understandings.
