New Product: Scholastic’s Next Step Guided Reading Assessment

Do you need a comprehensive reading assessment for students in kindergarten through grade 6?   Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Scholastic’s Next Step Guided Reading Assessment.

Scholastic’s Next Step Guided Reading Assessment(NSGRA), is an assessment tool designed to support teachers using responsive teaching to make data-driven decisions about reading instruction. This product is designed for use in grades K-6, with one kit for grades K-2 and another kit for grades 3-6.

The four-step NSGRA process provides a comprehensive, data-based view of students’ reading strengths and needs, including reading level. This material is primarily a set of assessments. All the materials required to administer the four assessments are included, along with general instructional planning guidance. Daily lesson plans and student instructional materials are not included with this product.

Teachers enter data into the online platform, Scholastic Digital Manger, which provides reports teachers can use to link assessment to instruction. Administration of assessments, data entry, and analysis of data will require a significant time commitment for teachers. The online platform includes extensive resources to support and guide teachers in administering the assessments, entering the data, and using the resulting reports to inform instruction.

Learning List has completed a standard-by-standard alignment report, qualitative review of the instructional content and a review of the technology compatibility for each grade level covered by this material.  To learn more about this product and thousands more PreK-12 instructional materials, contact Learning List for subscription information.
