You can be confident in the reliability and validity of
Scholastics Fluency Formula Assessment System due to the extensive
testing process used to develop the evaluation components.
Edformation, an independent educational research and development organization,
created grade-level passages. These passages were evaluated by administering
OFAs to a representative
sample of students. Based on statistical analysis of results, ineffective
passages were eliminated. The final set of passages were then normed
with thousands of students across the U.S., establishing their usefulness
as reliable and valid measures of student progress in reading.
