The Importance of Reading Assessments

Reading is part of every aspect of learning, which is why students in GMCS begin the school year taking a reading assessment. Assessments provide teachers with the knowledge they need to help students become fluent readers. Students at THM will take the first Reading Inventory assessment beginning the week of August 20 into September 7th. The results help teachers determine reading levels through a reading Lexile score that is converted to a grade level reading range. The assessment results help THM teachers write lesson places to meet the learning needs of students by determining areas of reading students are strong in and where they are struggling. Parents can help boost reading achievement by promoting reading at home each night, for at least 30 minutes.
