Our Nation’s goal of becoming a nation of proficient readers requires high quality teaching and useful assessments in every classroom. Our reading tests too often have driven out instruction because our teachers are not trained to use these tools to advance the learning and development of their students. “Measuring Up” offers the needed content for a successful professional learning community opportunity for America’s teachers to break out and to sustain strong advances in their students’ reading performance.
