Testing Instruments for Reading Skills: English and Korean (Grades One to Three).
Chu, Harold S.
MORE (Minimal Objectives for Reading Essentials) in English and Korean is organized by levels for the purpose of diagnostic testing and instruction for limited English proficient Korean students in bilingual and/or English as a second language classrooms. This program suggests that the development of English reading skills by limited English proficient students should be based on children's first language in terms of transferability of reading skills in the areas of auditory/visual discimination, phoneme/grapheme correspondence, structural analysis, vocabulary, and literal and interpretive comprehension. The Inventory at each level has 15 objectives (17 for grade 1 and 16 for grade 2 in Korean). Each objective has five test items. Administration and scoring of the Inventory is the responsibility of the classroom teachers. It is also the teacher's responsibility to maintain the individual and class Profile Sheets. The results of this diagnostic Inventory should be used for identifying a student's skill need, for determining remediation programs, and for organizing skill grouping. (Author/BW)
