This worktext applies current theory to classroom practice by providing, in each chapter, a brief explanation of major concepts followed by guided practical experience in administering, scoring, and interpreting reading assessment techniques. Like the popular first edition, this new edition:
* Emphasizes the use of assessment and diagnosis for instructional decision making--rather than for simply giving grades;
* Stresses the use of informal assessment techniques--reflecting the current emphasis in educational assessment theories--but also includes coverage of standardized test scores;
* Provides both classroom-tested results and interpretations of the data, giving students step-by-step experience in administering, scoring, and interpreting assessment techniques; and
* Includes numerous "hands on" activity worksheets.
This edition also includes more information about portfolio assessment and a new chapter on running records. An instructor's manual is also available.
