State begins testing phonics of kindergartners
Starting this week, Wisconsin's public school kindergarteners will be tested on how well they know letters, words, and phonics.
The purpose is to identify potential reading problems earlier, so they can be addressed before students get too far behind. In a statewide assessment, teachers will give kindergarteners oral directions in identifying phonics - and they'll respond both verbally and in writing.
