Inservice Reading Resource Kit and Project Reading Alert: Package 2--Learning Task 1, Construction of an Informal Reading Inventory (Tape and Workbook); Learning Task 2, Administration of an Informal Reading Inventory (Tape and Workbook).
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Reading Education.
Developed and coordinated by the Bureau of Reading Education of the New York State Education Department, Project Alert is a statewide inservice program to facilitate instituting or improving the diagnostic-prescriptive approach to reading instruction. As part of this program, a reading resource kit was prepared by the bureau to give structure and direction to the projects in the local schools. This multimedia kit presently has six packages, with three more to be prepared. Each of the packages in the kit analyzes one skills topic in reading. This second package in the kit, "The Informal Reading Inventory," explains how to construct and how to administer the informal reading inventory, and discusses ways to record the scores of silent reading comprehension questions and oral reading errors. A 30-minute film or video tape demonstrating procedures for administering and scoring an informal reading inventory has been produced to accompany the package but is not included in the document. An overview of Project Alert and the administrator's handbook, which describes the intended uses of the packages, are included with each package. (TO)
