Overview

Classroom Reading Assessments: More Efficient Ways to View and Evaluate Your Readers

The value of assessment is in its usefulness to the teacher and the student, not as an isolated mental activity. If we don't use the information we generate about our students to inform our instruction, we are simply "navel-gazing." Frank Serafini

Need to know more about your readers? Frustrated by test-driven assessments that merely mimic real reading behaviors. Classroom Reading Assessments returns assessment to its simple, crucial essence: knowing students-really knowing them-so that your teaching addresses their individual strengths and needs.

Frank Serafini helps you open windows into students' invisible mental processes as they select books, read and make sense of them, and respond to them. He gives you his best of the best-classroom-proven, research-based assessments for before, during, and after reading that meet four stringent requirements:

  • They improve your students' reading
  • They increase your effectiveness by pinpointing where students need help
  • They maximize efficiency by avoiding unnecessary instructional interruptions
  • They make sharing what you learn about students-with parents, other teachers, and instructional leaders-simple, direct, and useful.

At heineman.com, Frank even provides his most helpful customizable reproducible forms for assessment.

"We have to know the students in our rooms in deeper, more significant ways if we expect to be able to teach them more effectively and support their development as readers," writes Frank Serafini. Whether you need flexible assessment tools for RTI, or you're looking for clearer windows into your readers' thinking, Classroom Reading Assessments is your guide to doable, high-quality assessments that help everyone in the classroom learn more-including you.
