Self-Help Test: Reading Comprehension (Grades 3-8)

FREE  Do some of your students sound like good readers, but they don't seem to comprehend very well what they read? Teachers often simply hope that students will know how to read with understanding. It is so much 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. It is also useful around January 1 when friends and family are making New Year's resolutions. In fact, it is practical anytime students seem to be encountering difficulty understanding reading assignments.

This two-page FREE 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.
