An Investigation of Teacher Training and Perceptions Regarding Reading Assessment with Elementary Students
Barrand, Jessica L.; Rettig, Michael
Online Submission
This purpose of this investigation was to examine the level of training and perceptions regarding reading assessment by elementary teachers in a suburban school district. The teachers were given an on-line survey to complete in the spring of 2011. While the response rate to the survey was fairly low, the teachers who did respond indicated that did have some training in reading assessment and that they use the reading assessments in a meaningful way to help guide instruction. The results indicated that almost 70% of the participating teachers did have a specific class on assessment in their teacher preparation program (undergraduate or graduate). Eighty-one percent of the participating teachers felt that current reading assessments provided them with the information needed to adequately plan for the reading instruction of their students.
