The next Assessor Training event will take place on September 4, 2012, at the Edgewater Library from 2-4pm. CLICK HERE for a map and further details.

Assessors have a very important job at our literacy Council.

They are trained to give the Laubach Way to Reading (LWR)Diagnostic Inventory test to each new student.  The  purpose of the LWR Diagnostic Inventory is both to place students in the appropriate LWR skill book and to give the tutor a fairly detailed record of a student’s present reading skills.  By profiling a student’s strengths and weaknesses in reading, the Diagnostic Inventory alerts a teacher to the skills that probably ought to receive special emphasis during lessons and to the skills that may only require relatively short periods of time for learning.

Once a volunteer completes our 12 hour tutor training, they are eligible, and encouraged, to take our Assessor training.
