Quick Phonics Screener 

Quick Phonics Screener (QPS) is an assessment used to diagnose a student's strengths and instructional needs in phonics and decoding skills. Subtests measure a student’s skill in all levels of the phonics continuum, beginning with letter names and sounds and progressing through multisyllabic words. 

Other assessments may be given if more information is needed.

AimswebPlus®

AimswebPlus® is an assessment, data management, and reporting system that provides national and local performance and growth norms for the screening and progress monitoring of reading skills for all students in kindergarten through grade 8. AimswebPlus® uses two types of measures: curriculum-based measures (CBMs)—brief, timed measures of fluency on essential basic skills—and standards-based assessments (SBAs), which are comprehensive measures aligned to current learning standards. Furthermore, AimswebPlus® data provides teachers with the information needed to differentiate instruction and determine who will benefit from intensive intervention.
