Raw scores can be converted into reading level scores. Inter-rater reliability measures were found to be in the .98 range; alternate form reliability measures were in the .90 range. Criterion-related validity was assessed using the Woodcock Reading Mastery Test (revised).
This is an informal reading inventory designed to assess reading ability at emergent through middle school levels. Comprehension in this assessment is measured through story retelling and comprehension questions (which are separated into explicit and implicit facts about the story). Before comprehension tests are given, a prior knowledge test is given to assess the childÕs prior knowledge in the subject area. A CD-ROM is included with this book to provide demonstrations for administration and scoring.
