A Study to Design Reading Competence Indicators and Assessment for Grades 1-6 Students in Taiwan
Reading Competence Indicators
reading comprehension assessment
Presently, the reading education in elementary and secondary schools in Taiwan is based on the reading competence indicators of Mandarin in grade 1-9 curriculum announced by the Ministry of Education, but the indicators are focused mainly in language art and writing ability, the reading competence is just a small part of it, so we can say that we don’t have indicators just for reading competence. Besides, most of the students just read by themselves without any formal reading instructions, or teachers just ask them to write some abstracts of books, as a result these activities make reading unattractive to students. This study is based on one principle: make students find pleasure in reading ; we tried to design the reading competence indicators and assessment with focus on elementary school students, and the draft of reading competence indicators is based on the reading competence indicators of Mandarin in grade 1-9 curriculum announced by the Ministry of Education, the reading competence indicators by the National Research Council and the assessment of PIRLS (Progress in International Reading Literacy Study). We also invited teachers in elementary schools, reading research experts and librarians for focus-group interviewing to evaluate this draft. Finally, we developed the reading competence indicators and assessment adapted to the leveled books for children; these tools can be used to record the reactions of children and evaluate their level of reading competence.
