Zip Test.
Scott, Norval C., Jr.
A copy of the Zip Test, designed to determine quickly the grade placement of a migrant child in reading and math and to assess his English language facility, is presented. The purpose of the test is to locate the instructional level at which the child can effectively use mathematics and reading books and to indicate his ability to conceptualize verbally in English. The test is not intended for use in chronological grade placement. The test consists of a group of pictures of objects and activities, a series of simple words, six brief stories (each consisting of only a few sentences), a series of multiple-choice word opposites, a group of shapes and numbers, and a series of arithmetic problems. Two forms for use in recording the child's performance on the test and placement level are also presented. (KM)
