This popular classroom assessment tool is a supplement widely used by pre-service and in-service teachers to assess or test students' reading progress. A required component of pre-service training, this practical classroom tool is also used by reading specialists and as a focus for in-service workshops. Unique to this text are its K-12 scope and its abundant strategies for assessing students' vocabulary, phonics, and comprehension of text. New! Several graded reading passages have been updated and replaced with new, extensively field-tested selections, in response to user feedback. New! Rubric for Retelling has been added in Section One to increase coverage of retellings and help guide the assessment of retellings by teachers. New! Tabbing system for improved utility and navigation now marks the various sections of passages and forms. Expanded! A Leveled Trade Book Appendix provides a list of leveled books that correspond to each reading/grade level found in the book. A special feature of this appendix is the inclusion of high-interest, low level books for adolescent students who have serious reading problems--an area that is a growing concern among teachers today. Two sets of graded word lists and four selections of graded reading passages offer greater flexibility for testing and re-testing students with a wide range of reading competence. Balanced comprehension questions cover main idea, detail, sequence, inference, cause and effect, and vocabulary, achieving 'middle ground' in an era of continued controversy over extreme reading methodology. Easy-to-use perforated, punched, spiralbound format facilitates one-on-one teacher-student testing situations.
