What do the CommonLit Assessment Series assessments cover?

This article is intended only for customers and partners using the Assessment Series.

Each CommonLit Assessment is composed of three reading passages; typically, two informational passages and a literary passage. Each passage is accompanied by a set of multiple-choice comprehension questions to measure students’ reading abilities. For each assessment, the development team evaluates how well the questions on the assessment cover key skills and standards to ensure content validity. In other words, the team developing the assessments ensures the questions cover the important skills defined by state ELA standards.
