Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures, 2nd Edition provides a collection of tests for the comprehensive assessment of skills related to reading. These assessments can help identify why a student is having reading difficulty, determine what the next step in instruction should be to remediate that difficulty, and monitor progress throughout the course of instruction.

The majority of the tests are individually administered. Easy-to-follow instructions are given for the administration and scoring of each test along with reproducible record forms. Interpretation is based on skill mastery and comparison of performance among students in the classroom. Spanish assessments are also included for the early grades, where students may be in bilingual programs.

Vocabulary Handbook

For all educators who are working to improve reading achievement, the Vocabulary Handbook provides clear instructional approaches for successfully building students’ vocabulary knowledge—knowledge essential for strong reading comprehension. With teacher-friendly sample lesson models, this book can be used to boost vocabulary instruction in any reading program. It focuses on the three critical components of exemplary vocabulary instruction: teaching specific words, teaching independent word-learning strategies, and promoting word consciousness.
