A Taxonomy of Selected High School Equivalency Materials. Reading Social Studies Materials. Supplementary Inventory.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of General Education Curriculum Development.
Instructors can use this inventory to prepare high school equivalency students for the reading skills test of the new form of the Test of General Educational Development (GED). It replaces the instrument previously recommended for that purpose, the Iowa Tests of Educational Development (ITED). Fifty multiple choice questions test the ability to interpret nineteen reading passages, illustrations, maps, or graphs. An answer key and sheets for recording student responses are included. The skills needed to answer each question are identified, such as discriminating facts from opinions, comprehending maps, or identifying emphasis. After a student's responses are evaluated, the instructor should note any skill weaknesses and prescribe instruction using the designated card from the companion volume, A Taxonomy of Selected High School Equivalency Materials (Reading), ED 114 766. This Taxonomy is keyed to three New York State Education Department publications and six commercially available programs that can be used to introduce and reinforce specific skills which the student has not mastered. The materials range in difficulty from a seventh grade to a twelfth-fourteenth grade reading level. (CP)
