Intended to help educators select diagnostic and criterion referenced reading tests for their specific purposes, this book contains reviews of nine individual and three group tests. The reviewed tests were selected for their "importance" from a list of 34 and were reviewed by experts according to their descriptions of content, test development, aspects of validity and reliability, ease of administration and scoring, and manual quality. The individual tests reviewed are (1) the Botel Reading Inventory, (2) the Classroom Reading Inventory, (3) the Diagnostic Reading Scales, (4) the Durrell Analysis of Reading Difficulty, (5) the Gates-McKillop Reading Diagnostic Tests, (6) the Gilmore Oral Reading Test, (7) the Peabody Individual Achievement Test, (8) the Sucher-Allred Reading Placement Inventory, and (9) the Woodcock Reading Mastery Tests.
