Event Description:

BEST Literacy is a competency-based assessment that uses a variety of functional literacy tasks to measure the ability of English language learners to read and write. Beginning July 1, 2008, NYS agencies have the option of using this test to additionally assess students with BEST Plus scores of 541 or higher for the National Reporting System.

In this workshop you will learn what the BEST Literacy Test is, how to administer and score it, and how to interpret those scores in relation to NRS Levels and instructional design. This is not a required NYSED training but is advisable for programs using or planning to use BEST Literacy.
