OSPI K-2 Literacy Screener (Dyslexia)
Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, students in Grades K-2 will be screened for indicators and areas of weakness associated with dyslexia by their teacher. TPS is utilizing the i-Ready Universal Screener and Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) Assessment to screen students.
What is a Literacy Screener?
A literacy screener is a short, informal test that is given to all students to determine whether further testing is needed. It is not a formal evaluation for learning difficulties.
