TEA Required Reading Assessment
The state of Texas requires a reading assessment for all K-2 students to be administered three times a year. BISD is currently using MAP Growth Assessment. The assessment data provides information about the percentage of students who are “on target” or “still developing” in foundational skills of reading (such as letters and sounds, phonemic awareness, rhyming, beginning, middle and ending sounds in words, etc.), comprehension, vocabulary, writing, and language. The data also shows growth achieved by the student throughout the year. Using MAP data, along with other assessments, BISD teachers are able to identify students who may have reading difficulties and provide targeted intervention to help students reach grade-level goals.
