Monitoring Reading Behavior: Criteria for Performance.
Powell, William R.
Effective use of the informal reading inventory (IRI) depends upon the criteria used in determining the functional reading levels and more specifically the word recognition criteria employed in describing acceptable limits of oral reading behavior. The author of this paper looks at the diverse sets of criteria commonly used, the problems associated with these standard approaches, and the two different sets of criteria for word recognition error ratios to be offered for each condition under which the perception data was obtained. A rationale for each of these sets of criteria is presented for each assessment condition as they are developed within a partial theoretical framework. Emphasis is placed on clarifying the criteria problems connected with the informal reading inventory and the teaching and clinical practice which are effected by the evidence offered. (Author/RB)
