Reading Tests and Teachers: A Practical Guide.
Schreiner, Robert, Ed.
This guidebook puts testing in proper perspective as one aspect of evaluation and leads the test user through a practical discussion about selecting and developing valid, reliable tests. Its primary purpose is to assist classroom teachers, reading consultants, and school administrators in making decisions about measuring student reading achievement. The five chapters of the book discuss the following topics: a plan for using tests in reading evaluation, how to select and evaluate reading tests, the construction and analysis of reading tests, how to organize and apply test results, and definitions of measurement terms.
