Appalachia Educational Laboratory at Edvantia (NJ1)

In 2002, the Tennessee Department of Education asked the Appalachia Educational Laboratory (AEL) at Edvantia, Inc. to develop content for online professional development that would help meet the goals of the state's Reading First Program. In response, laboratory staff developed and subsequently delivered Assessment and Intervention in a Comprehensive Literacy Classroom, a five-module course delivered over 16 weeks. The course was designed to help K-3 teachers, K-12 special education teachers, and building-level administrators incorporate formal and informal assessments into their reading instruction and use the results of those assessments to guide instruction. The course was organized and delivered in five modules that covered the following topics: (1) a conceptual model of a comprehensive literacy classroom in which all children can learn to read by the end of the third grade; (2) the five essential elements of reading instruction; (3) the Tennessee assessment system and the four types of assessments (screening, diagnosis, outcome, and progress monitoring); (4) assessment instruments, implementation steps, and practice opportunities; and (5) use of assessment data to guide planning, grouping for instruction, and selection of instructional strategies. (Contains 9 tables and 1 figure.) [This report was written with assistance from Miguel Martinez.]
