Reading

Screening Tools

  • AIMSweb*. A universal data management and reporting system that uses valid and reliable general outcome measures of reading and math performance for grades K-8, to be used with any curriculum.
  • DIBELS Next*. The Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) help you assess the acquisition of early literacy skills by using short (one-minute) fluency measures to regularly monitor development of early literacy and reading skills.
  • Easy CBM*. An enhanced district-assessment system that provides school districts, administrators and teachers with a full suite of assessment and reporting options, offering a complete solution at every tier of the RTI process.
  • Edcheckup*. A progress monitoring system that evaluates measures student progress toward goals in reading, writing and math. These generic assessments, which are independent from any particular curriculum, also evaluate the effectiveness of instruction through the graphing of student data.
  • Predictive Assessment of Reading (PAR). The PAR accurately produces – in 15 minutes or less and in a one-on-one format – standardized scores in several areas that previously would have required the administration of several lengthy assessments.
  • STAR Reading. Assessments that include skills-based test items, and in-depth reports for screening, instructional planning, and progress monitoring in reading.
  • System to Enhance Educational Performance (STEEP). Downloadable paper-and-pencil and tablet-based brief assessments that can be used for screening and progress monitoring.
