Alonzo, Julie; Liu, Kimy; Tindal, Gerald
Behavioral Research and Teaching
In this technical report, the authors describe the development and piloting of reading comprehension measures as part of a comprehensive progress monitoring literacy assessment system developed in 2006 for use with students in Kindergarten through fifth grade. They begin with a brief overview of the two conceptual frameworks underlying the assessment system: progress monitoring and developmental theories of reading. They then provide context for how the comprehension measures fit into the full assessment system. Additional technical reports provide similar information about measures of early literacy and fluency. Appended are: (1) Item Specifications for MC Comprehension; (2) Suggested Guidelines for ordering items for test pull and test form development; (3) Item Ordering Tables for Third Grade Passage 1 and 2; (4) Item Ordering Tables for Third Grade Passage 1 and 2; (5) Teacher Directions for Administering the MC Comprehension Measures; and (6) Example of a Formatted Third-Grade Comprehension Test. (Contains 83 tables.)
