Why does this matter to you?
Without a strong foundation in reading, children are left behind at the beginning of their education. They lag in every class, year after year because more than 85 percent of the curriculum is taught by reading.
Studies in brain-based learning have shown that the developing brain in early childhood is the most malleable it will ever be. By using MEFS to assess your children quickly and often (it only takes 5-minutes), there is no need to wait for a single year-end assessment to determine how to best support the continued growth of individuals in your classroom.
