Unlock your students' full potential with our evidence-based, comprehensive reading assessments, rooted in the Science of Reading.

Created by a team of literacy specialists and informed by the Lexia LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) Suite and UFLI (University of Florida Literacy Institute) Foundations Program, the Hoot Reading Assessment is intentionally designed for evidence-based, 1:1 literacy instruction.
Covering the two key areas of reading development; word-level reading (decoding) and language comprehension, in accordance with the large body of research commonly known as the Science of Reading, our assessments provide a holistic understanding of a student's reading abilities, identifying both strengths and areas for improvement.
Hoot Reading Assessments follow a non-linear path unique to each student to assess various skills, including phonological and phonemic awareness, word-level decoding, fluency, and comprehension, and delivers actionable insights and an instructional pathway unique to every student.
Our assessments are designed with educators in mind, with individual student and aggregated versions designed to communicate the key insights to parents, educators, and administrators, saving time and streamlining evaluation.
Hoot Reading Assessments support ongoing progress, dosage, and impact monitoring, engaging parents in student progress, enabling educators to track student growth, and helping schools and districts make future literacy investments equitable, impactful, and cost-effective.
