Handbook of Reading Assessment
Comprehensive, readable, and filled with numerous authentic examples, The Handbook of Reading Assessment addresses the continuum of reading assessments from informal, classroom-based to high-stakes formal testing. This book is unique in its comprehensive, balanced, and timely coverage of key issues and challenges in assessment of reading. Designed for use by advanced undergraduates and graduates in general education, reading education, special education, and school psychology, this much-needed resource addresses the wide range of reading assessments educators must be able to use and understand to effectively assess, instruct, and to communicate across disciplines. Separate chapters focus on informal classroom based assessment, progress monitoring, individual norm-referenced assessment, and group norm-referenced or 'high-stakes' testing. Each of these chapters concludes with useful tables listing some of the most commonly used assessments and their psychometric properties.
