Evaluating Reading and Study Skills in the Secondary Classroom. Reading Aids Series.
Viox, Ruth G.
Suggestions are made for evaluating reading and study skills in secondary school content subjects. Evaluation procedures include (1) standardized reading tests, (2) teacher-made informal reading tests, (3) inventories of reading and study skills, (4) interest inventories, and (5) teacher observations. Suggestions are made and samples are shown for the development of informal reading tests and inventories in content subjects. Uses of classroom evaluation results are described for lesson planning, student motivation, student understanding, intrafaculty consultation, and teaching techniques for use with students who cannot read the textbook. References are included. (JB)
