I am writing to see if anyone is using forms g and h of the Nelson-Denny as
part of their  reading assessment portfolios and if so how are you scoring
them. I have been pilotting them as part of our current assessment
portfolio but have run into time difficulties while scoring.  I think I now
understand why the university had stopped using this particular test.  I
just started here as the reading specialist and this test was strongly
suggested  because they had used it before.  I now realize that it may not
be the best possible tool.  I welcome suggestions for other similar tests
that are being used and/or any information on how the Nelson-Denny can be
scored electronically.  Riverside stopped selling the scoring program last
year.  Any assistance is welcomed.
