X-Listprocessor-Version: 6.0c -- ListProcessor by Anastasios Kotsikonas X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook, Build 10.0.2627 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Content-Type: text/plain; Status: O Content-Length: 1577 Lines: 46 Hello fellow List members. I hope this email finds you well. I'm pleased to announce the following Guest Discussion, which will begin on Monday of next week: April 11 - 15 Topic: Using Diagnostic Reading Assessments: For whom, when to test, and which to choose? Guest: Rosalind Davidson, Research Associate/Lecturer on Education, National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL), Harvard University Graduate School of Education Recommended preparations for this discussion: Review the assessment website based on the Adult Reading Component Study at NCSALL. http://www.nifl.gov/readingprofiles I suggest that you click on Match a Profile, to learn about the 11 ARCS -based profiles developed, and where your student might fall within the profiles. Also, if you click on Take the Mini-Course, you will learn about reading generally, assessing reading, and developing instruction. Finally, here are some questions that I throw out to you all to consider in preparation for our discussion with Rosalind next week: What reading assessments do you use? Why? How do you determine a student's reading level? (What reading diagnostics do you use?) What are the challenges you face trying to assess reading? What recommendations do you have for assessing reading? Thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing you all here next week! marie cora Moderator, NIFL Assessment Discussion List, and Coordinator/Developer LINCS Assessment Special Collection at http://literacy.kent.edu/Midwest/assessment/ firstname.lastname@example.org
