Student Literacy Corps Accountability: Assessment Challenges, Explanations, and Opportunities.
Flippo, Rona F.; Hetzel, Charles
This paper presents the seven assessment instruments used by the Student Literacy Corps project at Fitchburg State College, Massachusetts, to document tutee progress and tutor assessment. The paper includes: (1) the Flippo Interest Inventory (for assessing tutee's attitudes toward reading); (2) instructions for the tutor to give to students on how to write a writing sample; (3) "Feelings: Literacy-Related Survey" (for assessing tutee's feelings about his/her reading and writing competence/self-concept); (4) "Classroom Reading Miscue Assessment" (for assessing tutee's word recognition and comprehension abilities); (5) directions to the tutor for the use of semantic mapping (for assessing tutee's schemata in content-related topics/concepts); (6) a questionnaire to assess changes in tutor's attitudes and opinions; and (7) "Attitudinal Scale for Parents" (for assessing parents' perceptions of tutee's growth). Four sample semantic maps are included. (RS)
