Presented are effective ways to evaluate K-6 students' spelling, word recognition, fluency, comprehension, strategic knowledge, and more. Aided by lively case examples, preservice and inservice teachers and reading specialists learn to tailor assessment to the needs of each child and use results strategically to inform instruction.
