Description

Examiners gain flexibility in obtaining information for ensuring a reader’s growth, assessing the effectiveness of specific reading approaches, and diagnosing a wide range of literacy needs.

 

Teachers, reading specialists, and clinicians turn to this comprehensive reading and language inventory to carry out every aspect of effective reading and learning assessment–from a quick screening through a comprehensive reading assessment. The design of the inventory allows examiners the flexibility to obtain information for measuring a reader’s growth, assessing the effectiveness of specific reading approaches, and diagnosing a wide range of literacy needs. The assessment model includes personal interviews and student reflection, observations, informal and formal tests, and diagnostic teaching, plus valuable research-based tools and guides that complement the assessment model and provide a balance of assessment practice that doesn’t over-test students. The materials in the Bader Reading and Language Inventory can be used to assess students at a wide range of ages, from preschool children through adults.

 

The new Seventh Edition features important updates and revisions to the graded passages, including two sets of passages, an elementary set and a secondary/adult set; a second form of graded passages offering greater range from which the evaluator can choose; revisions to the subtests and graded word list test; updating for relevance for use with ELL children and adults; and an updated DVD and instructor forms.

Part Six READER’S PASSAGES

New to this edition

This new Seventh Edition of the Bader Reading and Language Inventory features some important updates and revisions to the graded passages, including two sets of passages, an elementary set and a secondary/adult set; a second form of graded passages offering greater range from which the evaluator can choose; revisions to the subtests and graded word list test; updating for relevance for use with ELL children and adults; and an updated DVD and instructor forms.

 

More accurate assessment and quicker screening of readers is made possible through the revised Graded Word List Test.

 

Pre- and post-testing of students in the elementary grades–plus alternative choices of passages in cases where retesting is required–is accomplished through an added Form B for the Elementary set of Graded Reader Passages.

 

Pre- and post-testing of secondary and adult learners–plus alternative choices of passages in cases where retesting is required–is accomplished through an added Form B for the Secondary/Adult set of Graded Reader Passages.

 

Teachers have access to more appropriate reading material for elementary aged students–and thereby more accurate assessment of students and more accurate placement in reading materials–through the inclusion of new fiction and non-fiction passages in the Elementary set of Graded Reader Passages.

 

Assessment information can now be kept in one location, instead of with each individual passage, with the new reading evaluation sheets for oral and silent reading.

 

More accurate assessment of silent reading is made possible through the new and updated silent reading rates for elementary students.

 

Examiners have a wider range of examples to show students using the revised DVD that includes new and updated silent reading rates for elementary students.

 

Examiners have a wider range of examples to show teachers of secondary level students and adult learners using the revised DVD that includes new and updated silent reading rates for secondary and adult students.

 

Examiners have improved access to the necessary forms, which they can run off on a printer connected to a computer, using the forms included on the revised DVD.

Features & benefits

Teachers and evaluators are armed with a vast array of assessment tools to use with students including interest inventories and checklists; English Language screening; word recognition lists; graded reading passages; phonics and structural analysis tests; spelling tests; visual and auditory discrimination tests; preliteracy and emerging literacy tests; cloze tests; instructions for evaluating oral and written language expression, oral language reception, and handwriting; and instructions for open book reading assessments. The variety of tools offers a great deal of flexibility to determine readers' literacy levels, plan instruction, or make referrals.

 

Examiners learn the appropriate testing sequence for Quick Screening through flowcharts illustrating Adult literacy tests and diagnostic testing.

 

Readers learn from the examples of thousands who have been tested using the validity and reliability data included in Part IV of the book.

 

Teachers have opportunities to create their own student booklets or use individual word lists or pages with the Readers’ Passages included in the back of the book.
