Listening and Reading Comprehension Screening for Grades 2-5

A deep, rich understanding of text, reading comprehension, is the ultimate goal of all reading instruction. Reading comprehension can be disrupted by multiple factors, and it is the job of the reading teacher to determine where instruction needs to begin.
With these listening and reading comprehension screenings, teachers can determine if reading comprehension difficulties are due to poor basic word recognition skills, poor vocabulary, poor background knowledge, poor listening comprehension, or a combination of factors.
The listening and reading comprehension screenings are normal for second grade students at the end of the school year. Both listening and reading comprehension screening instruments are intended for group administration.
