Connect to Comprehension


The Connect to Comprehension program uses three assessments that serve to: identify skill weaknesses in decoding; measure oral reading fluency; and identify strengths and weaknesses in specific comprehension skills.  The assessments include pretests, posttests, and tests for ongoing progress monitoring. progress




Single Word Assessment

Single Word Assessment consists of 100 words of increasing phonetic difficulty.  This measure is used to help with initial placement of students, to identify specific decoding skill gaps, and to monitor progress with decoding skills

Passage Assessment

Passage Assessment consists of a series of one-page decodable selections which directly align with the program levels.  This is used for a measure of oral reading fluency and to monitor progress with using learned skills in reading connected text.

Passage Comprehension/Vocabulary Assessment

Passage Comprehension/Vocabulary Assessment consists of a set of 9-10 questions for each decodable passage.  The questions measures a student’s ability to recall facts and details, make inferences, compare/contrast, determine cause/effect, identify main idea, identify author’s purpose, and determine meanings of unknown words from context. 

Each set of selections includes a pretest, posttest, and selections for progress monitoring.  Scoring sheets for each assessment are also provided.

An additional assessment is provided for Kindergarten/Non-readers with letter naming, letter sounds, word blending, word building, and listening comprehension.
