Reporting on Reading, v4 n5 Entire Issue Aug 1978
The articles in this publication look at how tests can be used to improve the quality of reading instruction and more generally at what excellence in a reading program means. Among the topics are: changes in the reading assessment prepared by the National Assessment of Educational Progress; a discussion of the limitations and possibilities of competency testing; how the National Diffusion Network and the Joint Dissemination Review Panel work together to help interested educators learn about programs used successfully in other school districts; and interviews with two educators about how they help parents, teachers, and the community understand test scores. Reviews are included of four resources for evaluating the reading fundamentals of teachers, for evaluating a school reading program, for evaluating bilingual education programs, and for evaluating literacy tests for adults. (TJ) Aspect of National Assessment (NAEP) dealt with in this document: Results (Overview).
