This program, included in "Effective Reading Programs...," serves an unselected cross section fo 793 students in K-6. The program is designed to provide classroom teachers with information about the needs and progress of each student in order to enable teachers to diagnose reading problems and prescribe activities to correct them. The major components of the program are behavioral objectives, criterion-referenced tests, individual and group records, and a materials retrieval system. The behavioral objectives cover the following seven major skills areas: word recognition, phonetic analysis, structural analysis, comprehension, word meaning, study skills, and literary skills. Criterion-referenced tests are provided for each objective within each level. The system also uses a pupil record form for tracking pupil progress. The profile consists of a summary of the child's progress within the seven skills areas and a complete listing of the objectives, by levels, for the entire program. A retrieval system codes worksheets, tapes, games, records, filmstrips, and other materials according to the objectives they teach and enables the teacher to select appropriate instructional materials for each objective.
