Making the Most of Informal Inventories.
McGinnis, Dorothy J.
Informal inventories emphasize observing a child's behavior and performance in order to draw inferences about factors affecting his achievement in all areas. Suggestions are given for some uses of informal inventories, teacher-designed measures, and adaptations of such tests as the Minnesota Rate of Manipulation Test and the Gray's Oral Reading Paragraphs. Some ways to improve reliability and validity are suggested. A few techniques for identifying and interpreting behavior are given. A case study illustrating the use of boy's comments during informal reading testing is reported. References are included. (CM)
