The results of the May 1984 British Columbia Reading Assessment were presented in this summary report. Highlights of the survey, summary tables of important results, and conclusions and recommendations made by the Contract Team were outlined. The students in grades four, seven, and ten completed achievement surveys and attitude scales. Five domains were identified by an advisory committee of classroom teachers and subject specialists. Items were developed to assess students' competence in each area. The domains assessed were Words and Expressions; Literal Comprehension; Inferential Comprehension; Critical Comprehension; and Locates/Uses Information. The next assessment of reading is scheduled to take place in 1988. (DWH)
