This publication presents a set of recommendations for selecting, conducting and using oral reading assessments. The recommendations highlight basic principles that should be applied in the different stages of executing effective oral reading assessments—from planning and design to implementation and use of the resulting data. The recommendations are drawn from a series of articles published in the ebook Understanding What Works in Oral Reading Assessments. The articles were authored by individuals from organizations that implement assessments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academics, ministries of education, donors, international organizations and civil society. In its entirety, the contributions cover experiences from more than 60 developing countries.
