Reading Comprehension in Large-Scale Assessment: A Symposium

As readers, we all draw on our prior knowledge and experiences to make meaning of the texts we are reading. Join the National Assessment Governing Board for a symposium on how this varying background knowledge is addressed in reading comprehension assessments across the country and internationally.

This virtual symposium will take place during the Governing Board’s March Board meeting, with a separate session devoted exclusively to a discussion on framework updates for the NAEP reading assessment. The symposium will feature Board members along with other experts in reading comprehension and large-scale assessment.
