Assessment Procedures of Reading Attitudes: A Survey of College and University Reading Clinics.
To determine if college and university reading clinics assess students' attitudes toward reading and to discover the methods used in such assessments, questionnaires were sent to the directors of 110 reading clinics. Analysis of the data gathered from the 55 respondents revealed that a majority did assess reading attitudes and that most used inferred methods. The most popular methods of inferred assessment were the number of books independently read by students and clinician observations. Only a small percentage of the clinics reported using a standardized measure all of the time, and more than half commented that few reliable instruments existed for such assessment. The most commonly used form of assessment instrument was the student self-report, which usually involved an interview. (FL)
