A Response to Robert Calfee's "How Theory and Research on Reading Assessment Can Serve Decision-Makers."
Graves, Michael F.
After some initial comments on Robert Calfee's discussion of ways in which theory and research in reading assessment can help decision makers, the author makes two points: (1) we need to provide a much better education for reading teachers than is currently being provided, and this will require radically larger amounts of time than are currently given to it; and (2) real improvement in students' reading ability is only likely to come when the various people involved (including test and program developers, university professors, and public school teachers and administrators) work together to improve the assessment and consequent instruction of their students.
