  • What percentage of children are at-risk (moderate progress; discontinued) on each subtest?
  • Are there areas that appear to need more support in general (oral language, alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, early comprehension)?
  • Is the percentage of children who are low risk increasing from one screening window to the next, for each subtest? 


  • Who has needs?
  • If learners’ scores indicate risk, what is the instructional need (based on what is assessed by the subtest in which the child scored in the at-risk range)?
  • Are learners maintaining low risk status from one screening window to the next, or moving from at-risk status to low risk status?
  • Has additional instruction/support worked, e.g., based on progress monitoring data?
