Literacy Screening Tools For your classroom
Screening is a PLD area of strength. For each age range, a collection of non-standardised screening tools are available for download.
Each screen is simple and time efficient to administer, and aims to highlight the instructional needs of students.
The screening tools can be administered:
- After a period of explicit instruction, hence highlighting if students have sufficiently mastered the concepts and are ready to progress.
- To the whole class, hence identifying the range of needs within the class.
- When individual students are experiencing difficulty, or are slow to progress.
