In this paper we address questions regarding the assessment of literacy, exploring the idea that practical judgements made in specific communities of practice are the phenomena at the intersection of validity for (1) local sites and (2) administrative systems. We propose a template for considering the challenges facing systems, administrators and teachers as they work to validly assess the important aspects of literacy learning by students in schools. We identify and discuss some concerns and assumptions that are common across the two validity sites, and some that are distinctive.
