Only assessment data that targets core reading skills can tell you which areas a student is struggling with and guide you toward evidence-based interventions and supports that meet a student’s individual learning needs.

• Choosing valid assessments
• Supporting ELs
• Planning effective literacy instruction
• Implementing a school-wide reading improvement model
