Student Assessments

The Connect to Comprehension program uses three assessments that identify skill weaknesses in decoding, measure oral reading fluency, and identify strengths and weaknesses in comprehension skills. Each set includes a pretest, posttest, tests for ongoing progress monitoring, and scoring sheets for each assessment. An additional assessment is provided for Kindergarten/Non-readers with letter naming, letter sounds, word blending, word building, and listening comprehension.

Passage Comprehension/Vocabulary Assessment
