Development of an Informal Reading Assessment Inventory for Teachers Trained in Directive Teaching.
Lucas, Virginia Hibbett
The five basic objectives of this study were: (1) to review and analyze five reading programs and write the skills and concepts presented in each program; (2) to compile a list of skills and concepts found to be common in the majority of programs; (3) to develop and write assessment tasks with terminal criteria that require student performance of each skill and concept; (4) to write a teacher's guide for administering and recording results of informal assessment inventory; and (5) to field test and revise the informal assessment inventory until percentage of agreement achieved between examiner and observers was .85. The study focused on the population of students identified and placed in special programs for children with learning and behavioral disorders. The assessment materials were developed to be used by teachers trained in directive teaching. Field testing on the Informal Reading Inventory for Directive Teaching was conducted in three phrases. The objective of the first field test was to identify problems in administering the assessment. The second and third field tests were conducted to establish the reliability of the results. The results of field tests two and three showed a mean agreement of 96.2 and 92 respectively. (Author/WR)
