Guiding Reading Instruction Using CBA.
Instructional Support System of Pennsylvania, East Petersburg.
This module represents one of several components developed to train school personnel in the Instructional Support Team Process. Its purpose is to train school-based teams to use natural assessment and intervention techniques in building effective instructional programs for students who are academically at risk. The module is based on one form of Curriculum-Based Assessment, a form which believes that the most fundamental purpose of assessment is to guide decisions about curriculum and instruction. This guidance must reflect the real intent of instructional assessment, which is to "set and manage" favorable learning conditions for students, conditions which enable all students to achieve success in school. The module incorporates effective learning principles and teaching practices with current reading theories and instructional approaches. It is designed to reach students who experience difficulties in reading and reading related activities during the elementary school years. (Author)
