Reading Assessments

Title I law requires Title I programs to report on an individual student’s adequate yearly progress.

It is up to the Title I teacher to monitor progress in all of the grades they serve. A review of each Title I student’s progress is conducted to determine if students are making adequate yearly progress. A minimum of three assessment criteria must be used to measure student progress.

Title I teachers are required to track the progress of all students served in the Title I program. It is also important that they document the results of these assessments.

Please note:

  • A minimum of three different assessments must be used to record the progress of all Title I students.
  • These assessments may be objective or subjective. For example, the Title I teacher could use narrative progress reports as one assessment criteria.
  • A portfolio, documenting the progress of each child and showing the three assessments that were used, must be maintained on each Title I student.
  • Each of the three assessments must be given to each student at least twice a year, preferably more often.
  • Different assessment tools can be used at each grade level.
  • Title I teachers are required to use three assessments in reading if the student is receiving
  • Title I services in reading, and if serving the student in math, three math assessment measures.
  • Title I teachers must provide parents of all Title I students with the child’s individual assessment results.
