The report gives teachers and students a quick assessment of core reading skill levels. It serves as a foundation for future improvement, which can be achieved using the activities on this web site and other materials as a supplement to everyday instruction.

These lessons are a helpful resource for elementary and secondary level students, ESL classes, and GED preparation programs.
