READING TESTS AND TEACHERS.
FARR, ROGER
TESTS SHOULD BE CAREFULLY EXAMINED IF TEACHING OBJECTIVES ARE TO MATCH TEST OBJECTIVES. TEACHERS SHOULD BECOME MORE PROFICIENT IN THE BROADER ASPECTS OF EVALUATING READING PERFORMANCE AND SHOULD EMPLOY A WIDER VARIETY OF EVALUATION TECHNIQUES. THE USE OF STANDARDIZED READING TESTS AS INDICATORS OF INSTRUCTIONAL READING LEVEL SHOULD BE ABANDONED. PUBLISHERS SHOULD BE FORCED BY TEST USERS TO DISCOVER THAT IT IS UNPROFITABLE TO PUBLISH A TEST THAT DOES NOT MEET THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION'S MINIMUM STANDARDS. SUBTEST SCORES OF STANDARDIZED READING TESTS SHOULD BE INTERPRETED WITH CONSIDERABLE CAUTION. EIGHT REFERENCES ARE GIVEN. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (BOSTON, APRIL 24-27, 1968). (AUTHOR/RJ)
