PROCEDURES FOR EVALUATING GROWTH IN READING SKILLS.
SARTAIN, HARRY W.
WHEN THEY INDIVIDUALIZE READING INSTRUCTION, TEACHERS SHOULD REALIZE THAT CHILDREN ARE VERY DIFFERENT AND THAT CONTINUOUS APPRAISAL OF EACH CHILD'S ATTRIBUTES AND NEEDS IS IMPERATIVE. TEACHERS SHOULD UTILIZE INFORMAL EVALUATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR APPRAISING GROWTH IN READING SKILLS. READINESS FOR BEGINNING READING IS DETERMINED BY OBSERVING PERSONAL MATURATION TRAITS, LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT LEVEL, AND BEHAVIORS MANIFESTING PICTORIAL INTERPRETATION ABILITIES, STORY SENSE SKILLS, AND VISUAL-DISCRIMINATION SKILLS. SO THAT SUITABLE MATERIALS ARE ASSIGNED TO EACH CHILD, IT IS NECESSARY TO DETERMINE HIS READING LEVEL BY STUDYING RECORDS OF PREVIOUS WORK AND GROUP OR INDIVIDUAL READING INVENTORIES. TO INSURE APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTION AND BALANCE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF VARIOUS READING ABILITIES, CONTINUOUS APPRAISAL OF EACH CHILD'S DIFFICULTIES AND PROGRESS IS ACHIEVED THROUGH TEACHER-PUPIL CONFERENCES, BY RECORDING INDIVIDUAL EXTENSION READING, BY ANALYZING ERRORS IN ORAL READING, COMPREHENSION, AND WORK-STUDY EXERCISES, BY CONDUCTING INTEREST INVENTORIES, AND BY TESTING EYE-VOICE SPAN AND AUDITORY-MEMORY SPAN. TO PROVIDE MORE EVALUATIVE TECHNIQUES, A LIST OF REFERENCES AND STRANG'S CHECKLIST RECORD OF CLASSROOM OBSERVATION ON PUPIL'S READING ARE INCLUDED.
