Early literacy skills are crucial in a child’s learning process and awareness should be raised in order to ensure the quality of early literacy assessments. In this paper, the writers discuss the quality of early literacy assessment in Malaysia, LINUS 2.0 by looking at its validity and reliability. An established early literacy program is compared with LINUS 2.0 in order to opt for the strengths to be implied into LINUS 2.0. By using all these information, a suggestion of improving LINUS 2.0 is given, which is by integrating the program assessment with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for assessing English language literacy. It was concluded that more studies and research should be done on early literacy assessment in Malaysia so that more suggestions and ideas could be gathered in order to refine the quality of early literacy skills assessment.
