This invaluable primer provides the basic information that teachers and tutors need to get started on the complex process of reading assessment. Designed for maximum utility in today's standards-driven classroom, the book presents simple, practical assessment strategies that are embedded in a solid framework of theory and research. It takes teachers step by step through learning to recognize "good reader" behaviors, assessing each student's strengths and weaknesses, analyzing the evidence collected, and making instructional decisions. Formal and informal measures are discussed for a variety of purposes, including assessment of emergent literacy, word identification, fluency, comprehension, and motivation for reading. Filled with illuminating concrete examples, activities for developing assessment skills, and reproducible checklists and worksheets, this is an essential resource for elementary educators. It is also an ideal text for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses and inservice training programs.
