Review:

“The assessment information is ordered in an appropriate meaningful way. I especially like the fact that students can go to the website and download an IRI.” -Dr. Priscilla Leggett, Fayetteville State University

 

“I like how assessment is embedded with text topics as well as with teaching strategies favoring developing readers and writers. [The] text goes into greater detail about the causes of reading problems and addresses the nature versus nurture question better than I have seen in other texts.  It does have very good coverage of assessment and teaching strategies for the reading process.” - Terrence V. Stange, Marshall University
