Focusing on Standards: A Checklist for Rating Competencies of College Reading Specialists. College Reading and Learning Assistance Technical Report 84-04.
Brozo, William G.; Stahl, Norman A.
A checklist to rate competencies of college reading specialists is presented, along with background information about the instrument. Based on a review of the literature on professional standards for specialists, five broad categories of competencies were developed: undergraduate training, instruction, research and measurement, administrative and counseling, and personal characteristics. The checklist, called "The College Reading Competency Checklist," can be used in at least four situations: by a reading teacher search committee, for supervision of undergraduate and graduate practicums in college reading, for supervision and review of reading specialists, and for self-evaluation. When using the checklist, the evaluator ranks the specialist's competencies on a three-point scale ranging from low to high. Under each of the five broad categories, skill competencies and knowledge prerequisites are detailed. For example, under the category of "instruction," the first skill is the ability to individualize instruction. The numbers next to this skill denote that it was cited six times in the literature, and the exact sources can be determined by looking at the corresponding numbers in the appended reference section.
