The Foundational Skills Survey is a complimentary set of assessments that are commonly used:

  • in 1st grade
  • and with older students who perform well below expectations on basic decoding assessments

One-on-one assessment of 1st Grade foundational literacy skills, including:

  • Simple and complex single-syllable words (including short vowels, digraphs, blends, closed syllables, and various long vowel spellings)
  • Decodable two-syllable words
  • Selected sight words
  • Optional assessments for sight words, letter sounds knowledge, and letter names knowledge

The data collected from these assessments can help determine what type of basic literacy instruction will prepare students to meet the foundational skills expectations for the end of 1st grade.
