The flow chart below might be a helpful visual for making decisions related to assessing and reassessing in Foundational Skills:
Each school or district will purchase a number of Foundational Skills "assessment rounds" as part of a Literably subscription.
Some of Literably's most popular subscriptions include 3 assessment rounds per year, 4 assessment rounds per year, and 9 assessment rounds per year. Schools and districts also have the ability to subscribe for weekly or biweekly assessment rounds.
Within each round, each staff member has some discretion on how many phonics and phonological awareness skill assessments they can give students. That said, Literably recommends that staff have students take as many skill assessments as needed in order to identify a group of skills that they want to then help students improve on until their next assessment round.
Staff can identify skills and subskills that students can improve on by using the color-coded scaled scores (which will typically be coded red or yellow) that are reviewable on staff dashboards and on each graded assessment page.
How staff approach each assessment round will most likely change when Literably releases the ability to assign just subskill assessments (e.g., as assessment that is just focused on the deletion skill within PA) to students.
