Acadience Reading Diagnostic: CFOL

Learn how to administer and score Acadience Reading Diagnostic:  Comprehension, Fluency, and Oral Language (CFOL).


Acadience Reading Diagnostic: CFOL Workshop

This workshop introduces users to the Acadience Reading Diagnostic: CFOL (Comprehension, Fluency, & Oral Language) assessment. CFOL is an in-depth diagnostic assessment that assists educators in untangling the many possible reasons why a student may be struggling with comprehension. CFOL assesses the following areas: story coherence/text structure, listening and reading comprehension, vocabulary and oral language (e.g., formal definitions, morphological awareness, figurative language, syntax), and fluency with expository and narrative texts.

The workshop provides training on how and when to administer the CFOL measures, logistics of assessment, and its use in an outcomes-driven model. Practice activities and case studies will provide real-world examples of how to use the assessment with students in need of instructional support in these skill domains. Participants will learn how to use CFOL to help provide a complete picture of student reading skills and the interconnected nature of fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and oral language.

Acadience Reading Mentors who complete this workshop can earn the CFOL endorsement and will be given access to Acadience Learning's official training materials to train others.
