This project worked with the New York State Education Department and New York State teachers to develop, pilot-test, and research the Elementary Literacy Profile, a classroom- based assessment instrument that gathers evidence about progress in literacy learning. The information that the Elementary Literacy Profile provided can be useful for instruction and reporting to parents and the public. The project involved 1,500 students in 25 districts. The studies of the Profile in these districts aimed to examine its psychometric properties, provide understandings about its feasibility for use across the state, and assess its impact on teaching practice and student learning.
