Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

McKenna (reading, U. of Virginia) and Stahl (reading, New York U.) present an updated and revised text on reading assessment, offering K-12 teachers a clear framework for planning, administering, scoring and interpreting a wide variety of formal and informal assessments, and for using the results to improve instruction. The second edition features expanded chapters on phonemic awareness and fluency; new sections on DIBELS and maze tasks; revision of forms from the first edition and the addition of new reproducibles including Tests of Phonemic Awareness, Checklist of Internet Strategies, and Adolescent Reading Attitudes Survey; a new discussion on the use of alphabet books based on recent research; modified discussion of miscue analysis, and what it can and cannot tell teachers; and a quick-reference table summarizing all of the instruments.
