Research has identified that four components—alphabetics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension—are essential in reading development and essential in the reading process. To understand the underlying strengths and weaknesses that are affecting reading comprehension, ABE ELA teachers diagnostically assess each learner. They then use this information to target reading instruction.
Diagnostic assessments in alphabetics, vocabulary, and fluency can be accessed below. However, the virtual training Introduction to Diagnostic Assessment of Reading is a valuable SABES offering that prepares teachers to administer and interpret these assessments.
