This download is the Teacher Training Manual for our Module 2 Training Course: The Assessment Tool Kit.
Teachers, therapists, and homeschooling parents may purchase the Training Manual without taking the Training Course. This Teacher's Manual teaches teachers, therapists, and homeschool parents how to utilize the Lil' Reading Scientists TM Assessment Tool Kit.
The Assessment Tool Kit is an informal screening, which accurately pinpoints the areas of breakdown in students' reading skills, and serves to place the student in the correct Level of the Lil' Reading Scientists TM curriculum continuum. The Assessment Tool Kit also identifies student growth and progress, quarterly or by semester, through pre and post test administration.
This Manual covers the following information:
Instructions for Initial Assessment
Deciding Which Screenings to Administer
Instructions for End of Semester Post Testing
Instructions for End of Semester Reports
Instructions for Interpreting the LRS Assessment
Using the LRS Assessment Results to Place a Student in the LRS Curriculum
