Assessment of the Cognitive Domain of Reading.
Marschner, Jane; And Others
Noting that the purpose of testing and test validity, reliability, norms, and usefulness should be primary considerations in choosing a reading test, this paper is intended to serve as a guide in test selection. The document provides a checklist for collecting the information necessary for selecting a test, and brief overviews of five reading achievement/survey tests, nine diagnostic tests, and four reading readiness tests. A chart for quick reference follows each set of descriptions. The document concludes that a comprehensive testing program should include the use of teacher observation, health and anecdotal records, work samples, classroom tests, cumulative records, case studies by specialized consultants, objective or standardized tests, and any other tests needed to assess student performance.
