Acadience Reading K-6 Essential Workshop

Join us for a live, interactive, workshop experience!

Initial Data Collection Training (2-day Workshop)

This workshop introduces users to the Acadience Reading K-6 assessment, a research-based universal screening and progress monitoring assessment used to measure the acquisition of early literacy skills from kindergarten through sixth grade. The assessment is comprised of brief measures. These brief measures function as indicators of the essential skills that every child must master to become a proficient reader. These measures are used to regularly monitor the development of early literacy skills in order to provide timely instructional support and prevent the occurrence of later reading difficulties.

This workshop provides training on the foundations and research behind the assessment, how to administer and score each of the measures, the logistics of assessment, and its use in an outcomes-driven model. Extensive practice activities are included.

Acadience RAN is also supported within this workshop. However, for more in-depth training on RAN, there is a workshop option dedicated to training on how to administer and score the Acadience RAN measures.

Additional Details:

  • In-depth training on how to give and use the Acadience Reading K-6 assessment.
  • A printed copy of the training workbook containing administration instruction and practice activities.
  • Practice activities will be embedded throughout the training. 
  • Step 1 in becoming an Acadience Reading K-6 Mentor. 


Note: This training is also available to complete asynchronously. You may learn more here.
