NebraskaREADS provides tools and resources to support high-quality literacy instruction for all Nebraska students. The initiative highlights policies, procedures, and practices that guide the selection and implementation of literacy practices and evidence-based interventions, and assists districts as they build family, community, and school partnerships to help students become successful readers, setting them up to learn, graduate, and succeed.

The following reading assessments have been reviewed by the Nebraska Department of Education and are approved pursuant to the Nebraska Reading Improvement Act (Nebraska Revised Statute 79-2601 to 79-2607).  The threshold levels for which a reading deficiency would be identified for each approved assessment at each grade level are linked below.
