Description:

This new edition of Assessing Readers continues to bridge the gap between authentic and informal assessment and the more traditional quantitative analysis and summative approach that typically governs the work of reading specialists. At the heart of the book is confidence in the capabilities of knowledgeable teachers to make the correct literacy decisions for the students they teach. It supports individual classroom teachers' knowledge, beliefs, decisions, and roles and offers specific assessment, instruction, and organizational ideas and strategies, while incorporating the range of perspectives that inform the field of reading and literacy education and covering the most important ideas and information found in more traditional reading diagnosis books. Inclusive and practical, this is the ideal text for any reading assessment and instruction course. Changes in the Second Edition: Addresses the Common Core State Standards; includes Response to Intervention (RTI); discusses family literacy in language-diverse homes and the needs of ELL students; offers ideas and guidelines for ELL assessment; looks at issues of accountability and teaching to the test; provides new practical examples.
