What Professional Educators Say about Reading Miscue Inventory ...
At a time when teachers and schools are being called upon to document the progress their students are making in reading and math, I can't think of a better book to put in the hands of classroom teachers. I use the Reading Miscue Inventory routinely at the middle school level, particularly when developing plans to support readers who seam to be struggling. Even when I am not completing a formal miscue analysis, I listen to readers for the information the RMI has helped me to value.

This authentic assessment provides substantive data on how readers engage with the reading process to make meaning; it also illuminates the disconnects in that process when reading is challenging. unlike most reading assessments that only provide a label or a "level," the Reading Miscue Inventory provides teachers with the insights to know how to help readers better succeed.

In this era of high stakes testing and commercial classroom reading tests, the Reading Miscue Inventory restores professionalism to teacher assessment and hope for our nation's readers. This new edition succeeds in making our most powerful tool for revealing readers' strengths and needs even more accessible than ever, with clear directions for implementation, interpretation, and instructional applications. These literacy luminaries are once again lighting our way!
