Reading assessment


  • Good readers do not have to see everything on the page, but just enough to get the meaning.

  • Then what about this?

Reading assessment

A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly-behaved grandson. He has his hands full with the child screaming for sweets, biscuits, all sorts of things. The grandad is saying in a controlled voice: "Easy, William, we won't be long . . . easy boy."

Another outburst and she hears the grandad calmly say : "It's okay William. Just a couple more minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang in there, boy."

At the checkout the little horror is throwing items out of the trolley. Grandad says again in a controlled voice : "William, William, relax buddy, don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes, stay cool William."

Very impressed, she goes outside to where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car. She says :

"It's none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time you kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandad."

“Thanks,” says the grandpa.

“But I am William.

The little bastard’s name is Kevin.”

Why do we need to assess reading

Why do we need to assess reading?

  • Understand students’ reading growth

  • Evaluate teacher’s teaching effectiveness

What do we need to know about assessing reading

What do we need to know about assessing reading?

  • Assees reading process & reading product

Reading assessment

  • Reading processes

  • Skills and strategies--readers use

    • decoding, determining vocabulary meaning, reading fluently, and comprehending

  • Reading product

  • Scores of quiz, test, questions, etc.



Process oriented reading assessment

Process-oriented reading assessment

  • Focus on the skills and strategies that students use to construct meaning from the text.

  • It allows teachers to assess in the midst of students’ learning.

  • It helps teacher determine what skills and strategies are working (or not working) as the student attempts to construct meaning.

  • Assessment is not only to measure comprehension but also strategies used or not used.

Product oriented reading assessment

Product-oriented reading assessment

  • It provides an after-the-fact account of student reading achievement.

  • It helps teachers determine student’s achievement in realtion to important benchmarks, standards, and goals.

  • Product assessments are relatively limited in their ability to provide detail on what students can and can’t do as they read.

Self assessment


Traditional: Student work, such as a quiz, test, or written report, is handed in, evaluated and graded, and then returned to the student.

-->The student earns a score but gains no understanding of how assessment works.

Reading assessment

A hallmark of the successful reader is the ability to monitor his or her reading and conduct an ongoing assessment of reading progress (Pressley and Afflerbach, 1995).

-->A good start is asking and modeling simple and straightforward assessment questions and helping students learn to ask them and answer them independently.



Use the textbook you brought to create a scaffolding activity for students to learn how to self-assess.
