Does decoding the prompt ensure test success?

Many ELA standardized assessments include a complex task. These often require students to combine several reading and writing skills in order to produce a longer written response.

To succeed at such a task, students must first be able to decode the prompt. This includes accurately interpreting the meaning of the academic vocabulary. However, this alone is not enough.
