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: 1442 Lines: 38 Hi everyone, This week we have the pleasure of hosting Rosalind Davidson, from NCSALL at Harvard. Please see below for further details - note in particular the ARCS website address, suggested preps, and the series of questions that have been posed to you. Another query: anyone out there using the ARCS already!??! Let us know about your experience! Thanks and looking forward to an interesting discussion! marie 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 (ARCS) 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. 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?
