Bloomfield-Barnhart Developmental Reading Mastery Test: Evaluator's Handbook [and] Individual Pupil Packet.
Barnhart, Cynthia A.; And Others
The Developmental Reading Mastery Test of oral reading, comprehension, spelling, and language skills is based on curriculum materials by the Bloomfield-Barnhart reading program, Let's Read. The non-graded program teaches reading in eleven steps (skill sequences), with corresponding subtests, as follows: (1) shape discrimination, directionality; (2) letter recognition; (3) short vowel monosyllables with "a"; (4) with "i", "u"; (5) with "e", "o"; (6) with simple blends; (7) with consonant clusters and digraphs; (8) regular long vowels and dipthongs; (9) common irregular words and suffixes; (10) irregular vowel spelling patterns; and (11) irregular consonant spelling patterns. The subtests must be administered in this order. The Evaluator's Handbook contains directions for administering, scoring, and interpreting each level. The Individual Pupil Packet contains pretests and posttests for each level, worksheets for recording scores and evaluator comments, and a record form for recording a student's progress at each level.
