Portfolio and performance assessment : helping students evaluate their progress as readers and writers by Roger C Farr( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and French and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responding to the increasing demand for the assessment of authentic language use, this book emphasizes that portfolios must first be useful and successful as part of instruction before they can be used effectively for assessment. Portfolios are presented in the book as working (not "show" portfolios) to promote the student's involvement in analyzing portfolio contents. The book aids in developing and training students as self-assessors so that they can monitor for themselves the effectiveness of their use of language. Chapters in the book are: (1) Thinking about It? Why Portfolios?; (2) Getting Started: Decisions, Decisions; (3) Building the Portfolio: What Goes in It?; (4) Using the Portfolio: Student and Teacher Assessment; (5) Portfolio Conferences: The Key to Success!; (6) Pulling It All Together: How to Solve the Assessment Puzzle; (7) Constructing Performance Assessments: Integrating Reading and Writing; and (8) Evaluating Performance Assessment Results: Developing Rubrics and Anchor Papers. Answers to 37 often asked questions about portfolio and performance assessment; an annotated sampling of 107 sources available on language arts portfolio assessment and performance assessment; and blackline masters/models of records, forms, note sheets, letters to parents, and announcements for use by students and teachers assessing with portfolios are attached.

7 editions published between 1972 and 1977 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet presents ideas for utilizing standardized reading tests and an informal inventory to determine the reading levels of secondary school students. Comprehensive reviews of the most commonly used standardized tests for high school students and information about their construction, standardization, administration, and use make up the bulk of the text. The rest of the book deals with the criteria used in reviewing the tests and a short chapter detailing how to select a reading achievement test. The book is intended primarily for classroom teachers and other personnel directly concerned with selecting reading achievement tests; information is thus not presented in highly technical or statistical terms.

Measurement of reading achievement by Roger C Farr( Book )

8 editions published in 1971 in English and German and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of a series of reading research profiles developed from the eric/crier data base, this annotated bibliography which focuses on the assessment of reading behavior is aimed primarily at researchers but is also relevant for test developers and users. The included studies cover the years 1950 to 1969 and were selected from published journal literature, dissertations, USOE-sponsored research, and International Reading Association conference proceedings. Part 1 examines organismic, test composition, and environmental factors which affect validity and reliability of tests and includes empirical studies of such factors. Part 2 cites studies which examine validity and reliability problems related to vocabulary, comprehension, word attack, rate, study skills, oral reading, and other subareas of reading. Informal reading achievement measures, including informal reading inventories, check lists, rating scales, and teacher evaluations are discussed in Part 3. Multiple criteria use and other problems of measuring reading growth are considered in Part 4, school-wide testing programs are cited in Part 5, and unique approaches to measuring reading achievement are described in Part 6. An author index and ordering instructions for document reproductions are included. (Ms)
