The Evaluation of Children's Reading Achievement. Perspectives in Reading, No. 8.
Barrett, Thomas C., Ed.
Ways that reading evaluation programs can bring reading success to individual students are presented. Each chapter is written by an authority on one of the following topics: what evaluation is, who does it, and when it should be done; reading program goals as the basis for evaluation; informal techniques for assessing prereading behavior; use of reading readiness tests for prediction and diagnosis; selection and use of survey reading achievement tests; values and limitations of diagnostic reading tests for classroom evaluation; informal reading inventories as a means of improving instruction; teachers' questions and levels of reading comprehension; evaluation through teacher-pupil conferences; and evaluation of the affective dimension of reading. References are included after each article. (CM)
