IDA Knowledge and Practice Standards for Reading Teachers

The IDA Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading (revised 2018) define what all teachers of reading need to know and be able to do to teach all students to read proficiently.

The IDA accredits pre-service and in-service educator preparation programs on the basis of their ability to document alignment with the KPS, as articulated in the IDA Accreditation Handbook (under development).  

The Center for Effective Reading Instruction (CERI) oversees certification of individuals in alignment with the Knowledge and Practice Standards.
