Now Online: What Every Elementary Teacher Needs to Know About Reading Tests

January 26th, 2009

If teachers knew more about how reading tests are made, how standards are interpreted, and how students can apply their knowledge of reading to the items that appear on reading tests, then teachers could spend much less time trying to figure out these tests and could feel less like servants to the dictates of their state assessment.

In the past decade, Charles Fuhrken has worked with hundreds of teachers who were asked by their state departments to review the tests that he helped write. Conversations with those teachers inspired his new book, What Every Elementary Teacher Needs to Know About Reading Tests.

This practical guide dispels myths about test making and test taking, gives you a thorough look at the content of test items for the most commonly assessed reading standards, and offers over 30 print-rich, easy-to-prepare reading activities to build and assess student skills.

What Every Elementary Teacher Needs to Know About Reading Tests will empower you to overhaul your approach to test preparation and free up time for your core curriculum. Available later this month, you can preview the entire book online now!
