This popular resource distinguishes itself from other texts by placing literacy assessment within the context of mainstream classroom reading instruction. Using developmental reading stages as a framework (e.g. early-emergent literacy stage, emergent literacy stage, beginning literacy, and so on) Literacy Assessment puts teachers' instructional needs at its core and considers assessment as a natural part of the instructional cycle. The authors' mission is to show that, with appropriate instruction, success in literacy development is achievable for every student. This popular author team is uniquely skilled in presenting the right balance of concept and demonstration, along with a dynamic, positive outlook on learning in both children and teachers.
