Inservice Reading Resource Kit and Project Reading Alert: Package 3--Diagnosis of Word Recognition Ability with Appendix.
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. Package 3, "Diagnosis of Word Recognition Ability," explores some of the ways to estimate students' sight vocabulary and to determine the word recognition skills they possess. This package covers the following areas: preparing and administering word recognition tests, practice exercises in reading results, recording and interpreting the results of word recognition tests, using the Dolch Basic 220 Word Vocabulary, flashing words with a tachistoscope, and using basal texts. An overview of Project Alert and the administrator's handbook, which describes the intended uses of the packages, are included with each package. (TO)
