"We can show that sustainable progress in literacy learning will be made when local educators have the freedom to collaborate and choose how best to approach critical instructional decisions." -- Keith Gilyard, NCTE President, February 9, 2012
Standards for the Assessment of Reading and Writing
These standards were originally published in 1994 by NCTE and IRA. They were updated in 2009. The revised document aims to improve the quality of assessment by providing standards to guide decisions about assessing the teaching and learning of literacy in 21st-century classrooms.
