Observation and Assessment of Early Literacy Achievement
Marie Clay designed An Observation Survey of Early
Literacy Achievement as a literacy assessment tool for
classroom teachers of children in the early stages of
learning to read and write. The Observation Survey
consists of five tasks, each of which informs a
different aspect of a child's literacy learning. In
addition to these tasks, the teacher performs Running
Records on the child's reading of continuous text.
Running Records allow teachers to effectively and
accurately observe, record, and analyze a child's
reading in order to make effective teaching decisions.
