Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Caldwell (education, Cardinal Stritch U., Wisconsin) offers K-12 teachers guidelines for strategies in assessing students' reading and listening comprehension. The use of questions, open-ended assessment, student dialogue, and standardized tests for comprehension are all addressed. Other chapters are devoted to the challenges of assessing word comprehension and of grading comprehension. Examples of strategies in practice supplement the text.

Synopsis:

How can busy teachers successfully manage the complex task of assessing their students' reading comprehension? This invaluable book--the first stand-alone guide on the topic--presents reliable, research-supported guidelines and procedures for K-6 teachers to use in the classroom. Through practical tips and realistic examples, the book demonstrates time-saving ways to implement and adapt a wide range of existing assessments, rather than creating new ones. Also covered are strategies for conducting multiliteracy assessments, using classroom assessment to complement standardized testing, accommodating response-to-intervention mandates, and linking assessment to content-area instruction.
