Universal Screening for Reading Problems: Why and How we Should do This http://www.rtinetwork.org/essential/assessment/screening/readingproblems
Screening for Reading Problems in Grades 1 Through 3: An Overview of Select MeasuresLearning to read is arguably the most important work of students in the early elementary grades. Learning to read lays the foundation for future learning and understanding across all areas of the curriculum. Without this foundation, students will struggle to achieve academically in not only reading and writing, but also in areas such as math, science, and social studies. Decades of reading research have provided a good blueprint for understanding how children learn how to read.
Screening for Reading Problems in Grades 4 Through 12When RTI is implemented with fidelity in the early grades, the anticipated outcome is that students who are struggling readers will be identified early and provided intervention. Even with an effective RTI process in place in Grades K–3, however, there will continue to be students in the later grades who require intervention to support their reading development. For schools, this means that a system for screening to identify struggling readers needs to continue beyond the early elementary grades into the middle and high school grades.
