Flynt/Cooter Comprehensive Reading Inventory, The: Assessment of K-12 Reading Skills in English & Spanish, CourseSmart eTextbook, 2nd Edition

By Robert B. Cooter, E. Sutton Flynt, Kathleen Spencer Cooter

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Apr 2, 2013

Description

A first-of-its-kind, comprehensive reading inventory for assessing the “Big Five” components of reading instruction as identified by the National Reading Panel: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.

 

The Flynt/Cooter informal reading inventory is recognized as the top choice of thousands of classroom teachers for its ability to help them quickly and reliably assess the reading skills and needs of their students. The Flynt/Cooter is considered an essential tool in preparing the next generation of P–12 teachers serving native English speakers, and/or English learners via the Classroom Reading Inventory: Español Version (CRI: Español) provided on the book’s new accompanying PDToolkit. In addition, the CRI has been the choice of many reading and literacy researchers seeking an evidence-based and validated instrument for use in high stakes research.

 

The CRI is designed to help educators assess the “Big Five” components of reading instruction as identified by the National Reading Panel: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. It offers the simple, straightforward miscue analysis method for assessing students’ levels of competency in reading comprehension and fluency, and offers easily administered assessment tools for discerning students’ development in phonemic awareness, phonics, and vocabulary.
