I.S.C. (Indiana State Council) Reading Test Survey.
Davis, John E.
A questionnaire was designed to study the uses made of reading tests by classroom teachers in Indiana with at least one year of experience in their respective classrooms. Of the 185 questionnaires distributed by local reading councils, 51 questionnaires were returned. The teachers responding taught in grades one through seven. They reported using 37 different tests: 84 percent used a battery of tests accompanying a basal reading series; 139 percent used reading achievement tests (some teachers used more than one achievement test); 41 percent used diagnostic tests; and 10 percent reported using intelligence tests as reading tests. Some of the responses indicated that most teachers probably use the previous year's scores to determine level of reading material and group placement and that they interpret grade equivalent scores as representing reading ability. Grade equivalent scores were found to be the most commonly filed test information in cumulative folders. (MKM)
