How should literacy learning be assessed?

NCTE Resources on Assessment

light bulbAs we evolve in our understanding of what it means to be literate in the 21st century and how learning works in the brain, the ways we assess literacy learning need to evolve as well. An effective approach to assessment gives us a wide range of indicators as to how we’re doing in the moment, where we’re headed, where we’ve been, and what we need to tweak to ensure we keep advancing.

NCTE has created several resources to support this approach because the more we learn about and practice what is possible, the better able we will be to advocate for changes to the problematic kinds of assessment that increasingly impact our work.

Select resources are listed below. Click here for a comprehensive list of NCTE resources on assessment.
