A successful ELA/reading curriculum is delivered using diagnostic assessments to help define a student’s zone of proximal development, so that personalized, adaptive instruction and reading intervention can help struggling readers become successful learners. Effective reading assessment solutions and literacy reform efforts begin with a plan centered around the student. Before students begin grade-level instruction, assessments should diagnose learning gaps. As instruction progresses, formative assessments help educators refine instruction to give students the best chance at being successful. Using education technology, or edtech, students can utilize personalized learning, automatic scaffolding of core lessons, growth measurement, and accountability whether they are in a classroom or at home with virtual learning.
