Reading Diagnosis: Informal Reading Inventories.
Fry, Edward B.
The reading diagnosis tests and observations in this book provide a systematic way of gathering information about a student. The first 10 chapters test the following: (1) general reading level through oral reading of graded paragraphs; (2) silent reading comprehension; (3) phonics skills through oral reading of nonsense words and phoneme grapheme correspondence through a criterion test; (4) vocabulary size through oral reading of words; (5) meaning vocabulary through silent reading of words; (6) letter and numeral recognition through oral reading of letters and numerals; (7) spelling level of beginning readers and of those of upper elementary ability; (8) handwriting quality by comparing a sample with the Ayres scale; (9) vision at a near point and a far point, and hearing through a whisper test; and (10) student interest inventories covering grades one through three and three through seven. The final three chapters explain how a teacher can obtain information through a structured parent/guardian interview, can summarize school records for maximum effectiveness, and can summarize the entire reading diagnosis process.
