Overview

Now in a revised second edition, this comprehensive resource provides the guidelines you need to best conceptualize assessment that benefits all students, as you understand and use reading assessment.

Framed in relation to the educational, social, and political factors that exert varied degrees of influence upon reading assessment, chapters focus on a particular type of assessment to familiarize you with the range of available assessments. Using assessment well demands knowledge and vigilance. Therefore, each chapter uses the CURRV framework as an organizing principle to help you consider the consequences, usefulness, roles and responsibilities, reliability, and validity of each assessment.

The second edition has been thoroughly updated with

New research and information on major national and international reading assessments

Information on the Common Core State Standards to show how existing assessments can describe and support complex acts of reading

A chapter on RTI and early reading assessment to show how assessment and instruction can work together
