In recent decades, the science of reading acquisition has been advancing through interdisciplinary research in cognitive, psycholinguistic, developmental, genetic, neuroscience, cross-language, and experimental comparison studies of effective instruction. Some of the science of reading has emerged from the theory and research into the realm of practice and policy. Yet the science and practice of measuring “reading comprehension” has remained relatively immune to much of this foundational knowledge. Measuring Up questions the traditional format of reading comprehension tests, typically a single series of questions asked about a series of passages, and offers ideas and innovations we might expect in a next generation of 21st century reading assessments.
Sabatini, Albro, and O'Reilly believe that in light of the move towards Common Core State Standards and assessments, as well as significant national investments in reading and literacy education, it is a critical and opportune time to bring together the research and measurement community to address fundamental issues of measuring reading comprehension, both in theory and in practice.

Our Nation’s goal of becoming a nation of proficient readers requires high quality teaching and useful assessments in every classroom. Our reading tests too often have driven out instruction because our teachers are not trained to use these tools to advance the learning and development of their students. “Measuring Up” offers the needed content for a successful professional learning community opportunity for America’s teachers to break out and to sustain strong advances in their students’ reading performance.

Forgione, Formerly Austin, TX Superintendent of Schools and Delaware State Superintendent, now Executive Director, The Center for K-12 Assessment and Performance Management, Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ)
