 Assessments and rubrics must align with the IRA 2010 Standards for all
three roles of the reading specialist/literacy coach:
 Interventionist/reading specialist
 Literacy coach
 Reading program supervisor/leader
 Assessment system must build a case that all standards are met
through utilizing the elements and potential sources of evidence =
“preponderance of evidence”.
 Program level assessments must be administered to all candidates and
should span across the program.

Literacy Coaching Tips
 Coaching initiatives should include
experiences in the program (such as the
reading clinic) AND also opportunities to
support teachers and/or paraprofessionals in
authentic school settings.
 Institutions should implement a
developmentally appropriate continuum of
coaching experiences across the program.
