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.
Single Word Assessment
100 words of increasing phonetic difficulty: Help initial placement of a student, identify specific decoding skill gaps, and monitor progress with decoding skills.
A series of one-page decodable selections which directly align with the program levels: Measure oral reading fluency and monitor progress with learned skills in reading connected text.
Passage Comprehension/Vocabulary Assessment
A set of 9-10 questions for each decodable passage: Measure a student’s ability to recall facts and details, make inferences, compare/contrast, determine cause/effect, identify main idea, identify author’s purpose, and determine meanings of unknown words from context.
Identify a student's ability to encode words with increasingly difficult phonetic patterns.
