Screening Requirements
All Wisconsin students are required to complete fall 2014 and spring 2015 administrations of PALS in 4K, 5K, first grade, and second grade. Second graders who attain high benchmark identification in the fall are not required by DPI to take PALS in the spring of second grade, but may be required to do so by the school or district. Most students who scored above the Summed Score benchmark in the fall still have room for growth in literacy skills. Completing spring administration will allow teachers to monitor student growth, and will inform instructional decisions as these students prepare to enter the next grade.
