Theory, basic knowledge and skills, and practical applications combine to ensure pre-service and in-service teachers have all that they need to make diagnosis and improvement an integral part of their reading programs. Based on the authors' premise that when assessment and instruction are central to a reading program, children's reading improvement will occur, the book sets the stage for effective reading diagnosis and improvement, describes various assessment measures teachers can use to assess and diagnose students' reading performance, and presents reading content and instruction. Comprehensive, practical, and comprehensible, this new edition is updated and substantially revised in light of the new discoveries related to reading assessment and reading instruction.
