Red Cloud Reading Test: American Indian Form of the Test of Individual Needs in Reading, a Competency Based Test of Reading Skills [and] Instructor's Manual.
The oral Red Cloud Reading Test provides a complete analysis of reading level and skills for American Indian students in grades 1-7 or for high school and adult students reading at or below high school levels. The test determines the basic and recreational reading levels, identifies reading problems, determines reading speeds, and analyzes the instructional needs of the student. It measures reading and listening comprehension, word and structural analysis, and use of context, and analyzes miscues. The manual includes instructions for individual and group test administration and scoring, as well as alternative testing procedures. The manual also includes statistical data pertinent to test development, validity, and reliability. The test booklet contains a summary of the instructions and the test itself. In addition to short tests for word pronunciation, recognition, and analysis and for prefixes, suffixes, and syllabication, the text consists of two stories about Red Cloud and Red Fox. The stories appear in short sections and each section is followed by a series of questions to test comprehension. Score sheets complete the test booklet. (SB)
