Using an On-Line Test To Assess Reading Skills and Predict the Ability To Successfully Pass a Reading SOL Test.
Simpson, Katherine P.
Designing a remediation program to meet students' needs involves finding out what a student knows and needs to know. An online testing program, such as eduTest, may provide the answers. This test is a versatile instrument that offers benchmark tests, grade specific tests, and strand tests in the four content areas for grades K through 8. The results, data, assessment, and feedback are immediate and specific. The use of eduTest online was studied with seven sixth graders who had not passed Virginia's Standards of Learning (SOL) test in grade 5. The results show increased improvement in all areas of reading ability for the students in the remediation program. The test was not a perfect indicator of improvement on the SOL test but it provided a point to gauge progress and set remediation goals. (Author/SLD)
