Because literacy is foundational for all content areas, it needs to be assessed regularly in all content areas, both formally and informally. Assessments can range from a formal pencil/paper test to an informal read aloud, questioning, and classroom discussion. It is important for teachers to use a variety of assessments in the classroom to ensure they have an accurate picture of each student’s current literacy levels.
Research four types of literacy assessments and create a matrix including the following:
- Two formal and two informal literacy assessments and rationales to explain their use, and how to avoid misuse during implementation.
- Examples of three appropriate literacy assessment tools for your content area and a rationale for each.
- Examples of three technology resources with a rationale for how each supports literacy assessment.
- An explanation of how you would use the data from a formal and an informal literacy assessment to plan future instruction.
Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
