Pre-K Language & Literacy Screener & Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS) K-3


Pre-K Language & Literacy Screener looks at alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, language: passage comprehension, name writing, and print concepts.

PALS-K Assessment is a measure of children's knowledge of several important literacy fundamentals: phonological awareness, alphabet recognition, concept of word, knowledge of letter sounds and spelling. PALS-K provides a direct means of matching literacy instruction to specific literacy needs and provides a means of identifying those children who are relatively behind in their acquisition of these fundamental literacy skills.

PALS 1-3 Assessment is used with children in 1st through 8th grades to identify students at risk of reading difficulties. These assessments are designed to measure children's knowledge of important literacy fundamentals and can be used to provide teachers with information to help guide their teaching.
