From the authors at Acadience Learning, the PELI is a storybook embedded assessment of pre-literacy and oral language skills needed for kindergarten.
The assessment is designed to identify children who are experiencing difficulties acquiring pre-literacy skills with the intent to provide the instructional support needed to improve future reading outcomes. The assessment is designed for preschool and prekindergarten students (ages 3-5). PELI measures alphabet knowledge, vocabulary and oral language, phonological awareness, and listening comprehension. The assessment is untimed and takes approximately 15 minutes to administer.
