Overview

From leading experts, this indispensable resource presents a practical model for conducting reading assessments for screening, diagnosis, and progress monitoring in each of the three tiers of response to intervention (RTI). K-8 teachers and school personnel are guided to use norm-referenced, informal, and curriculum-based measures to assess key components of reading development and make informed choices about instruction. The book describes how to survey existing assessment practices in a school and craft a systematic plan for improvement; reproducible tools include a 10-page RTI Assessment Audit that can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

See also Assessment for Reading Instruction, Third Edition, which explains the fundamentals of assessment and provides essential hands-on tools.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is important, useful, and timely. It focuses on how to plan the amount and types of assessment that will be 'just right' in each tier of RTI, in a style that is 'just right' for teachers and other practitioners. Readers will especially appreciate the information about the most appropriate use of curriculum-based measures, as well as the very helpful RTI Assessment Audit."—Karen K. Wixson, PhD, Dean and Professor, School of Education, University of North Carolina at Greensboro 

"A 'must read' for educators who are implementing RTI in literacy. Stahl and McKenna present practical and easy-to-implement strategies to support data-based decision making. They discuss the purposes of assessment and how much assessment is needed. Assessment tools and strategies are provided to help teachers and administrators determine each student’s risk status and response to a given intervention."—Theresa M. Janczak, PhD, Exceptional Education Department, Buffalo State, State University of New York

"Ideal for teachers at all levels of experience, this book describes strategies for assessing reading development that support the RTI process. The book gave me a greater understanding of RTI. It explains easy-to-implement, practical ways to assess student progress and make literacy instruction more efficient, including concrete examples. I was inspired to try out the authors' suggestions in my own classroom. This is a perfect resource for a school book study."—Laura K. Kelley, classroom teacher and RTI coordinator, Fulton Academy of Excellence, Aurora, Colorado
