When Accurate Assessment Leads to Excellent Instruction: Aligning Curriculum with the Science of Reading Using Acadience Reading K–6 and Voyager Passport

Monday, June 27, 2022 | 3:00 p.m. (CT)

Universal screening is an essential element of schoolwide literacy models for implementing the science of reading and aligning it to curriculum. Screening with Acadience® Reading K–6 efficiently indicates skill level on the essential early literacy skills—phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, and reading comprehension. Giving the assessment is only the first step. Educators need to know how to interpret the data and link assessment to curriculum and instruction that improve reading performance. 

In this useful session, participants will see examples of the common patterns of risk captured by Acadience Reading K–6 as displayed in the Acadience® Learning Online platform. Our presenters will share how the assessment results can lead to targeted lessons within the Voyager Passport® program. Examples of specific lessons will illustrate the instruction needed by students with each risk pattern.

Attendees will learn:

  1. The features of Acadience Reading K–6 as a universal screening assessment that indicates the five essential components of reading
  2. Which skills to target for science of reading-based instruction as displayed in the Acadience Learning Online platform
  3. The common patterns of data for students who are at risk of reading failure
  4. Targeted lessons within Voyager Passport that meet the needs of at-risk students
  5. How to pair assessment results with specific lessons and activities within Voyager Passport
