Using Optional Literacy Assessments
The extensive information gathered through the Benchmark Assessment conference provides a solid direction for instruction, but you may also want more diagnostic evidence about a particular child's literacy knowledge. For that purpose we include a series of optional assessments found in the Assessment Forms Book and on Online Resources. Getting Started, Fluency and Phrasing, Phonics and Word Analysis, and Vocabulary assessments provide information about the learner's knowledge in specific areas of literacy. Information gathered from these assessments can be used in planning targeted minilessons. -Fountas & Pinnell, Benchmark Assessment, 3rd edition
