Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts. Volume 2.
Fagan, William T.; And Others
This volume of measurement instruments in the English language arts is the second one produced by the Research Instruments Project (TRIP), which was designed to collect and evaluate research instruments in language arts, language and language development, literacy, literature, oral language, reading, teacher knowledge/attitudes, and writing. The 160 measurement instruments are arranged alphabetically by category; within each category, measures are listed alphabetically by author. All instruments are cross-referenced by author. The age range indicated is the specific age grouping as stated by the authors or the age of the sample to whom the instrument was administered. The description of the instrument provides the purpose of the instrument, the date of construction, and a physical description of the instrument--often including sample items and administration data (directions, time, scoring procedures, and so forth). The lack of reliability and validity data for instruments is indicated when the information was unavailable. In the case of tables of difficulty, indexes, and so on, the data contained are summarized and the complete data are made available with the test or references cited. (HOD)
