Tindal, Gerald; Marston, Douglas
Exceptionality, v6 n4 p201-30 1996
Two studies focused on concurrent validity and instructional decision making in using alternative reading measures with elementary regular and special education students. The first study examined the relation of oral reading performance to several other reading measures; the second study investigated teacher decision making, using quantitative and qualitative outcomes reflecting individual student change in reading fluency and prosody.
