Our Brooklyn at-home literacy assessment will not only help your child understand the wonderful world of words but also assess proficiency in various crucial literacy skills.
Evaluating Essential Literacy Skills
Our Brooklyn at-home literacy assessment is designed to gauge your children’s strengths and areas for growth across a wide spectrum of literacy skills, ensuring they are well-equipped for academic success and beyond.
Here are the key areas we assess:
1. Phonemic Awareness: Explore your child’s ability to identify and manipulate individual sounds in words, setting a strong foundation for reading and spelling.
2. Phonics (Decoding and Spelling): Discover how well your child decodes words and spells with accuracy, which is essential for becoming confident readers and writers.
3. Oral Reading Fluency: Evaluate ability to read with expression, speed, and accuracy, a key indicator of reading proficiency.
4. Spelling: Assess spelling skills to ensure that your child’s writing is not only expressive but also accurate and clear.
5. Vocabulary: Measure word knowledge and usage. A rich vocabulary is the cornerstone of effective communication and comprehension.
6. Reading Comprehension: Understand how well your child comprehends texts, from decoding words to grasping the deeper meanings within them.
7. Writing (Composition): Evaluate various facets of writing, including production fluency, grammar, syntax complexity, organization, punctuation conventions, and genre features. Your child’s ability to express ideas clearly and coherently is a top priority for us.
Setting the Bar: National Norms and Curriculum Standards
To ensure an accurate measure of your child’s literacy skills, our assessment compares their performance to national norms whenever available. Additionally, we benchmark their achievements against grade-specific curriculum expectations and the rigorous New York State Learning Standards. This comprehensive approach provides a clear picture of where your child stands, both nationally and within your local educational context.
