Pumfrey, Peter D.
General considerations involving the use of reading tests, the selection of reading tests, and the construction of informal reading inventories are presented in the first section of this monograph. The second section is devoted to test information and is divided into the following four parts: some screening and diagnostic tests of physical aspects of children's readiness for reading, including tests of hearing, sight, visual-motor coordination, language, articulation, and vocabulary; recognized tests of reading-readiness; reading tests and batteries of tests, attainment and diagnostic; and reading attitude scales. The following information is included for most tests: name of test or battery of tests; author; country of origin of the test; publisher; publication date; age range of subjects for whom the test is intended; skills or other aspects of behavior tested or rated; average administration time; and brief description of the test and comments.
