Schools use a variety of reading and writing assessments in their K-6 instructional programs. But are they actually actively using the information from these assessments to inform and drive their instruction and programs? This workshop will include hearing from two local school districts about how they are using a system of assessments to make instructional and programmatic decisions to improve student achievement. Participants will learn how to maximize the use of running records, high-frequency word and letter assessments, state assessment data and benchmark assessments. The use of data teams and progress monitoring will also be discussed.
Participants will learn how to maximize the commonly-used reading and writing assessments to make instructional decisions regarding their students. They will learn how to use these assessments to prioritize instruction to target skills and strategies that need focus and intervention, to assist with grouping practices and to design intervention lessons.
