Educators learn the research base that informed the development of Capti Assess with ETS ReadBasixTM and how to create and administer the assessment to gain valuable insights into learners’ foundational reading skills.
Introduction to Capti Assess with ETS ReadBasix™ is the critical first step for educators to begin implementing the assessment and gaining valuable insights into students’ foundational reading skills. Educators learn about the evolution of speech, writing and reading. Presenters will review the changes that occur in the brain when we read, and how these frame the overall topic of the ‘Science of Reading.’ Educators then complete the Capti Assess with ETS ReadBasix™ assessment, which includes six subtests. Finally, educators learn how to effectively administer the assessment and prepare learners to complete it.
Educators will learn the science and research behind the creation of ReadBasix. They will also participate in a deep dive of the five foundational skills and why it is important to assess them, enabling them to motivate and prepare students to do their best on each Capti Assess with ETS ReadBasix™ subtest and administer the assessment to students.
The recommended length for this centrally delivered course is three hours. Computer and web access are required. This session is delivered via a Zoom webinar room. Educators are provided temporary Capti IDs and are expected to login to sample assessment items.
