Criteria for Excellence in Reading: An Evaluation Scale.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Curriculum Services.
These criteria for determining excellence in reading programs were designed to focus attention on the substance rather than the form of reading instruction in Pennsylvania. School district evaluators are directed to apply an evaluation scale of zero, indicating an item is not applicable, to five, indicating a high score, to the criteria. Criteria topics and subtopics concern the learner, the staff, the community, instruction, materials, the environment, time, evaluation, and the budget. Examples of criteria for the learner are: "Instruction should be learner-centered and each learner guided through a planned arrangement of skills to read at his/her diagnosed expectancy level;" and "The learner should be encouraged to use his/her interests and experiences as an integral part of reading."
