Michigan Literacy Progress Profile: Preschool through Grade Three, 2001.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
One component of the Reading Plan for Michigan is to develop and implement methods of assessing children's progress in acquiring early literacy skills and of communicating their status and progress to other teachers and parents. This document presents an assessment and instructional system, the Michigan Literacy Progress Profile 2001 (MLPP 2001), a means for teachers to assess students' literacy strengths and connect that information to instructional decision-making within classrooms serving Michigan children. The document gives an overview of Michigan's literacy system, discusses the use of the MLPP 2001, and describes the organization of assessments in the MLPP 2001. Assessment tools are then presented in the following sections: (1) literacy attitudes; (2) oral language (speaking, listening); (3) phonological awareness; (4) comprehension; (5) writing; (6) concepts of print; (7) oral reading; (8) letter/sound identification; (9) sight/decodable word list, learning of high-frequency words; (10) known words, how children internalize and apply spelling patterns and rules; and (11) hearing and recording sounds, growth in spelling and letter/sound correspondence. Each section includes a rationale for assessment in that area, definitions, an overview of assessment tools available for children in preschool through Grade 3, assessment guidelines, and references used to develop the assessment tools.
