These assessments are typically administered multiple times throughout the year and are used to evaluate where students are in their learning progress and determine whether they are on track to performing well on future assessments. Assessments of this type are also used to guide the instructional process.

Dynamic Measurement Group: Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS)is a standardized set of passages and administration procedures designed to identify children who may need additional instructional support, and monitor progress toward instructional goals. DIBELS Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) assess skills that are consistent with the essential early literacy domains discussed in both the National Reading Panel (2000) and National Research Council (1998) reports in the areas of phonemic awareness, alphabetic understanding, accuracy and fluency, vocabulary development, and comprehension. Conversion tables for linking DIBELS ORF scores with Lexile measures are available

ELC and Kindergarten T.S.Gold:

**Measured Progress: Progress Toward Standards (PTS3)** is a rigorous online benchmark assessment designed to test reading mastery of students in grades 3-8 and high school. Delivered on a browser-based platform, PTS3 includes three reading forms per grade and is aligned to standards in more than 20 states. Districts and schools can use PTS3 to measure where their students are on the learning continuum at a given time and to collect data from reports to tailor instruction at the individual, class, school and district levels. Students who take the PTS3 receive a Lexile measure in addition to their standard reading score. Lexile measures are available at no extra cost to current and new users.
