--Better to actually provide them with information
about how good readers go about understanding text,
and then help them assess themselves
in relation to that information.
This test is a great way to begin the school year
to let students know what is expected of them.

friends and family are making New Year's resolutions.

to be encountering difficulty understanding reading assignments.
This two-page Self-help Test is designed to demonstrate skills (grades 3-8)
that are important to reading with good comprehension
when decoding of words is not an issue.
In 36 different statements, students decide for themselves if a statement is True or False,
and then they develop improvement statements
based on their own honest evaluation of their own reading habits.
