Acadience® Reading Diagnostic: PA & WRD

Learn how to administer and score Acadience Reading Diagnostic: Phonemic Awareness & Word Reading and Decoding. 


Acadience Reading Diagnostic: PA & WRD

This workshop introduces users to the Acadience Reading Diagnostic: PA & WRD (Phonemic Awareness & Word Reading and Decoding). PA & WRD is an in-depth Diagnostic: assessment that assists educators with measuring phonemic awareness skills, including tasks like segmenting and blending compound words, syllables, and phonemes. In addition, the range of word reading and decoding skills typically taught in grades K-3 is assessed. The workshop provides training on how to administer and score the PA & WRD. Additionally, the logistics of assessment and the use of the two assessments in an outcomes-driven model are supported. Practice activities and case examples explore the connections between these assessments to provide a complete picture of student skills from benchmark screening to Diagnostic: testing, instruction, and ultimately an evaluation of that instruction with progress monitoring.
