Assessment

Knowledge of concepts of print can casually be observed in everyday life such as a student’s interaction with a book or a drawing. Concepts of print can also be evaluated with informal assessments such as McKenna and Stahl’s “Book- Handling Knowledge Guidelines (McKenna and Stahl, 2009, p. 91-93). This assessment evaluates the child’s knowledge of book-handling, directionality, where to start reading on a page, the purpose of a period, and other important concepts of print. McKenna and Stahl’s “Picture Walk” assessment can also be used in the assessment of concepts of print (p. 94)
