Abstract

Knowing which assessments to give students struggling to read can be difficult. This online resource provides teachers with lists and links to great reading assessments that are either free for all or to teachers who work in the Corvallis School District. These assessments have been used and assessed by Corvallis School district staff, including Shanning Loggins and Danielle Geissler to insure validity of the assessments. As studies have shown, one or even two assessments do not always paint the whole picture of learners and more assessments are needed to better understand learners and be able to determine the next instructional steps we need to take to help foster student growth. Teaching is a great passion of Loggins and Geissler. It is their goal to be lifelong learners and always strive to be best educated so they can best reach the next generation. It is with this passion that they created an online resource that all Corvallis School District employees and students may benefit from. Loggins and Geissler plan to open the website up for others to post more valid assessments to. The more we share the more we know!
