Most Common Words Assessment

pose difficulties are identified.
Phonemic Awareness Assessment
- measures a student's ability to recognize individual phonemes and rhymes. The
use of graphics helps motivate and ensure students' knowledge of the vocabulary
- measures a student's ability to accurately produce individual phonemes. Students'
difficulties with specific individual sounds are identified in context of nonsense
words to ensure that students are not reading memorized words. This information
assists in prescribing extra practice in phonemes that are difficult to pronounce.
