What Constitutes Good Literacy Assessment?

Reading and writing are complex areas to assess. No single
assessment can include all aspects of these complex
processes. What’s more, there are multiple purposes
for literacy assessment, and no single assessment can
serve all purposes. Together, these facts make it clear that literacy
assessment is much more complicated than many realize.
In short, literacy assessment needs to reflect the multiple
dimensions of reading and writing and the various purposes
for assessment as well as the diversity of the students being
assessed.
