Rystrom Reading Comprehension Test.
Rystrom, Richard
Designed to measure specific dimensions of reading comprehension, the items for this test are based on a comprehension model which suggests that comprehension can be defined as six different skill areas: vocabulary, syntax, item recall, item sequence, interpretation, and evaluation. The test is divided into sections to correspond to each of the skill areas. Reliability coefficients for the various groups ranged from .70 to .98 with a mean of .84, and correlation coefficients between the California Reading Test and the Rystrom Reading Comprehension Test were calculated for four of the groups and ranged from .84 to .91. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Reading), title, author, date, and age range (intermediate), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
