I have used this book religiously for several years. There are a half dozen assessments I use to gather a general idea of literacy skills for my new students. I teach mostly at-risk high school learners, so these tests help me identify -quickly and efficiently - a student's ability to work independently on text-based activities. Without this book I might have gone back to roofing.
