Does CommonLit offer a beginning-of-year reading assessment?

If your district has chosen to purchase Assessment Series in CommonLit School Essentials PRO or School Essentials PRO Plus, you will not have access to the Free Reading Assessment. Instead, you’ll be able to collect baseline data through the first assessment in the Assessment Series. You’ll also have access to a Mid-Year and a Post-Assessment to help you track students’ reading growth throughout the reading year.

The Free Reading Assessment is a test that can be administered at the beginning of the school year or semester to better understand students' current reading skills. The test will be available beginning July 22nd.
