Articles related to assessment in the field of reading are presented to provide ideas for those studying reading and reading assessment. There are two sections to the bibliography: the articles themselves and an index. Many of the entries describe informal assessments and are intended mainly for classroom use. The 124 articles are listed in alphabetical order by primary author and indexed for the convenience of users. A set of descriptors was developed, and each paper was analyzed using the descriptors. A listing of the descriptors prefaces the index. Articles cover assessment at all grades for research, classroom, or large-scale purposes. They describe a number of types of tasks, from enhanced multiple-choice items to portfolios, and a number of kinds of performance assessments. Scoring is also considered by some articles. (SLD)
