Profiling Literacy Development: Monitoring the Accumulation of Reading Skills.
Griffin, Patrick E.
Australian Journal of Education, v34 n3 p290-311 Nov 1990
The paper outlines the development of a scale describing the progression of literacy skills, based on similar scales used in second-language acquisition. The scale is shown to have high reliability and appropriate criterion validity. Use of the scale to analyze student reading development is illustrated. Appended are descriptions of the scale's seven reading and nine writing skill "bands." (Author/DB)
