NARAP Reports: Defining Reading Proficiency for Accessible Large-Scale Assessments: Some Guiding Principles and Issues

Description

The National Accessible Reading Assessment Projects (NARAP) is a collaboration of two projects funded by the U.S. Department of Education to conduct research and development on accessible reading assessments for students with disabilities that affect reading. One of NARAP's first tasks was to develop a definition of "reading proficiency." This paper is a synthesis of the information collected and describes a set of principles and key unresolved issues described under each principle.
