Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Ekwall/Shanker is more than just a reading inventory. It contains many other assessments for assessing reading. A reading specialist, classroom teacher, resource teacher or school psychologists have a wealth of reading assessments in one book.” – Catherine Shiel, Stevenson University

Truthfully, I do not know of any real competition for this product. This book has so many worthwhile and useful assessments in one organized text. From what I can see, there are not really many other comprehensive assessment products like this book so far.” – Ilene Heller, Sanford Middle School, Seminole County, FL
