Many statewide assessments and standardized tests now feature a greater variety of reading passages and passages of greater length than in the past. It is not uncommon for students to encounter reading passages that are four, five, or even six pages long. In addition to longer passages, many tests now include both multiple-choice and written-response questions, which may be worth 2 to 4 points.
Students are more likely to succeed on tests like these if they experience this kind of challenging comprehension task beforehand. That’s the main purpose of this book: to help prepare students for reading and responding to longer reading passages.
