How Special Educators Assess Reading Comprehension: Some Concerns.
Lazarus, Belinda Davis; McKenna, Michael C.
Reading Psychology, v15 n4 p203-22 Oct-Dec 1994
Discusses three significant developments in comprehension theory (integration of information, prior knowledge, and prose organization) together with how certain innovative testing strategies can be used to match theory with format. Finds that six of the tests commonly used by special educators assess either a single dimension of reading comprehension or produce data without a context for appropriate interpretation. (RS)
