Recording and scoring information is also provided. A section of additional notes and implications for teaching includes instructions for administering the three parts of the test and filling out the summary sheet, guidelines for using the test results, and procedures for administering a group screening test and informal measures for selecting suitable reading materials for an individual or group.
