One of the responsibilities of a reading/literacy specialist is to select reading assessments that are appropriate and effective for the students being assessed. This means that the validity, reliability, and bias of the assessment needs to be considered.
For this assignment, obtain the instructional testing documentation for three reading assessments that would be appropriate for the selected grade range (K-8 or 6-12). These are readily available from schools and districts.
Create a 10-12 slide digital presentation for classroom teachers that analyzes each of the assessments in the following areas:
- How to address concerns about validity, reliability, and bias in assessments.
Include a title slide, reference slide, and presenter notes.
Include in your presentation, a recommendation for the assessment you would most like to use. Discuss why you believe this assessment is the most effective, reliable , valid, and bias-free.
The digital presentation should include graphics that are relevant to the content, visually appealing, and use space appropriately.
Support your presentation with 3-5 scholarly resources.
