Standardized test scores can't give you a complete picture of the effectiveness of your reading program—and they are no help in telling you what to do about poor results. But here's a book that describes a comprehensive assessment system that analyzes both student performance and the elements of your reading program.
Learn how to use schoolwide action research to empower faculty in collecting data on student progress, reading program effects, assessment practices, and curriculum materials. Get the tools and guidelines you need to integrate test score data with demographic information, performance measures, and student attitudes. And use the book's action research matrix to evaluate your reading program's attention to emergent literacy, vocabulary, word analysis skills, comprehension, and reading habits.
All the data-gathering tools you need to implement your reading assessment system are included on an easy-to-use CD-ROM that accompanies the book.
