Standing Committee on Literacy Assessment


Assessment continues to inform, even drive, curricula and pedagogies. Because it influences literacy teaching and learning—across the country and across every section of the Council—literacy assessment is a shared concern and a shared challenge. This committee will have the following charge:

  • To monitor developments in assessment policies and practices
  • To inform Council leaders and NCTE members, as they consider policy and advocacy, about ways assessment practices are impacting teachers.
  • To identify assessment practices that support the kinds of teaching and learning that research in literacy, language arts, literature, and composition studies demonstrates as most significant and effective.
  • To identify opportunities or needs for NCTE research and/or publications on literacy assessment.
