NECAP Reading & Writing

The Rhode Island Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) and Grade Span Expectations (GSEs) for Reading and Written and Oral Communication were developed as a means to identify the content knowledge and skills expected of all students (grades K-high school).

students readingPlease note that Rhode Island has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects ("Literacy in the Content Areas"), and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics.  In the 2013-14 school year, the CCSS for ELA and Literacy in the Content Areas will replace the RI Reading and Written and Oral Communication GLEs/GSEs in preparation for the change from NECAP (reading, writing, mathematics) to the new statewide assessment (PARCC) (ELA/literacy, mathematics) in 2014-15. 

For more information on the transition to the CCSS for ELA/literacy and mathematics.
