Title

Literacy Assessment Tools:  Sample Options for Students with Significant Disabilities 

Description

This chart, Sample Assessment Tools, compiled by Dr. Caroline Musselwhite, contains information regarding a variety of assessment tools that can be used to assess the literacy/reading progress of a student with a significant disability.  One or more of these tools can be used in addition to assessment tools used by districts.  These tools do not take the place of other assessments required by districts such as the DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills).

 

One assessment tool described in the above referenced chart is The BRIDGE (Pierce, Summer, O’DeKirk, in progress).  An example is provided here (BRIDGE photograph samples) of images of a Louisiana student engaged in various literacy activities outlined in the assessment tool.
