A Summary Report of Iowa's Review of PreK-6 Reading Assessments for Universal Screening and Progress
Iowa Department of Education
This document contains summary information for the Iowa Department of Education's review of PreK-6th grade reading assessments for the purposes of Universal Screening and Progress Monitoring. It is intended to provide general information to help inform decisions about selecting assessments for use as a part of Iowa's Response to Intervention work. Brief descriptions of what each column of information means in the summaries of the reviews of the universal screening and progress monitoring assessments are provided. Each description represents one column of information, starting with the column title in bold. This document is built around talking points for the reviews of assessments for universal screening and progress monitoring. There are other more technical documents that go into greater detail about the reviews. Universal screening is about assessing all students three times a year to identify those on track for success in reading, and those that might need something "more" in order to get back on track for success. Monitoring progress is about assessing students who are getting something "more" in order to make sure that the students are improving.
