Improving the Usefulness and Effectiveness of Reading Assessment. Instructional Resource No. 33 by Peter Afflerbach( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There is considerable interest in reading assessment and the influence that reading assessment can have on what is taught and learned in school. However, little is known about how teachers, administrators, parents, and students communicate and understand reading assessment information. Lacking this knowledge, educators do not know what kinds of reading assessment are useful to teachers and students. A study investigated the communication of reading assessment information between teachers and students in a metropolitan elementary school. Reading assessment information encountered in a sixth-grade classroom was the focus, as well as the experiences and issues that emerged in the yearlong investigation of how the teacher and a student communicated and understood reading assessment information. Findings suggest that successful communication of reading assessment information is never guaranteed, and that careful work must be done to create a context in which students understand what is intended. Contains nine references. (Author/RS)
Legislators, Reporters, and Reading Assessment. Reading Research Report No. 31 by Peter Afflerbach( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study aimed to examine how reading assessment information is understood and used by two powerful groups: federal legislators and members of the news media. Attempts were made to contact federal legislators on educational subcommittees to discuss how they used reading assessment information to make legislative policy decisions and to vote on education legislation. Education reporters were asked to describe their understandings and uses of reading assessment data in writing news stories. No response whatsoever was received from 25 (60%) of the legislators (United States Senators or Representatives), and only 2 legislative aides participated. This represented a participation rate of less than 5%. Only 3 of 17 education reporters participated, and 14 (82%) did not respond to repeated requests. While the response rate to repeated requests for information was low, the interview data describe: (1) five participants' varied knowledge of reading assessment; (2) the diverse types and sources of reading assessment information used by participants; and (3) how reading assessment information is used in government and the media. A central finding was the emerging narrative of a lack of response and a lack of access to legislators and reporters. (Contains 22 references.) (Author/RS)
