Overview

The Bader Reading and Language Inventory presents a much-needed, highly authoritative model for ensuring K—12 readers’ growth, assessing the effectiveness of specific reading approaches, and diagnosing a wide range of literacy needs. In it, teachers, teachers of adult students, reading specialists, and clinicians get a flexible approach to carrying out every aspect of effective reading and learning assessment–from a quick screening through a comprehensive reading assessment. Included are personal interviews and student reflection, observations, informal and formal tests, and diagnostic teaching, plus valuable research-based tools and guides that complement the assessment model and provide a balance of assessment practice that doesn’t over-test students.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Basic Reading Inventory is an easy-to-use, individually administrated informal reading assessment which identifies students' strengths and weaknesses in reading. It is an all-in one package which includes all of the tools needed for students to assess, interpret, and develop responsive reading instruction for administering, scoring, and interpreting the BRI.

Although Assessment drives reading instruction, my students need to learn how to teach reading before they can assess and evaluate. Kudos to Bader & Pearce for putting together an impressive collection of informal assessments for teachers! Inventory provides a step by step process on how to evaluate various reading/language components for students.

- Joyce R. Jeewek, Professor, Benedictine University, College of Education, Lisle, IL
