Informal Reading Assessment
Webquest for Elementary Teachers
designed by Professor Heather Schilling
As elementary classroom teachers, we must be able to quickly assess a
studentís reading ability and not simply rely on standardized tests performed
once or twice a year and that may take months to receive the results. While
these standardized tests provide an important picture for the school population
and are required by state and federal government levels, teachers need immediate
feedback on their studentsí strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, we need a
variety of assessments we can use easily to give us important information. This
tutorial will provide teachers with information on a variety of assessments.
