MS Foundations of Reading Test

The Mississippi State Board of Education approved the implementation of the Foundations of Reading Test in accordance with Mississippi Code Ann.  37-3-2,   effective July 1, 2016,   for  licensure  candidates completing   traditional  and  alternate  routes,  and  supplemental endorsements programs in elementary education.  A teacher candidate in Mississippi must earn a passing score of 229 on this rigorous test of scientifically research-based reading instruction and intervention and data-based decision-making principles as approved by the State Board of Education.  The purpose of test is to ensure that each licensed educator has the subject matter knowledge essential for entry-level teaching in the field. This licensure requirement also supports the critical role of the classroom teacher in ensuring that the students exit third grade reading on grade level.

The test measures proficiency in and depth of understanding of the subject of reading, reflects scientifically based reading research, conforms to the recommendations of the National Reading Panel, and is in alignment with Mississippi's 2014 College- and Career-Readiness Standards.  To visit the website click on the link below.
