Into Reading: Texas Assessment Prep

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Rainbow handled development of approximately 25 passages 600+ multiple-choice and technology-enhanced items focused on reading and writing skills to be used in connection with HMH’s Into Reading ©2020, Grades 2–5.

Our team of assessment experts developed short reading passages and crafted multiple-choice and constructed response items. Each constructed response item contained an item-specific rubric. For the writing portion of the assessment, our team created embedded error passages and multiple-choice questions designed to assess students’ knowledge of grammar, usage, revising, and editing.

Rainbow also handled art and photo searches for any passages that required graphic stimuli or support.

All passages and items were designed to reflect those found on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests and were aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
