Little Learners Love Literacy assessments
There are three formal assessments in the Little Learners Love Literacy® program – one for reading, one for spelling and one for phonological awareness. Together, these tools identify the progress and skill level of each child. They show exactly what a child can do so that teachers can plan what needs to be taught next, as well as track crucial progress data for reporting.
Test of Phonological Skills for Little Learners (ToPALL)
The ToPALL should be used to assess:
1. broad phonological skills such as rhyme, syllabification, onset and rime.
2. identifying phonemes in several positions within words.
3. blending and segmenting words
4. substitution, addition and deletion of phonemes in words.
