Criterion-Referenced Test for the Assessment of Reading and Writing Skills of Professional Educators.
Dupuis, Mary M.; Snyder, Sandra L.
Designed to assess the reading and writing skills of preservice and inservice teachers, this criterion referenced test assesses four skills areas following the reading of a selected professional article. The skill areas assessed are the ability to (1) understand the professional vocabulary used in the selection, (2) answer literal level comprehension questions, (3) answer inferential level comprehension questions, and (4) interpret information found in tables. The test includes a writing sample, a response to one of two evaluative questions related to the same reading selection. (This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts, Volume 2," published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. The TRIP review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (teacher knowledge and attitudes), title, author, date, age range (adult), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
