on multiple measures
Sun Dec 4, 2011 21:08

Disparities in data collection results like these are exactly why you want multiple measures. I'd want to explore these different responses. I know, for example, that my middle son, who just entered college, put on some of the application forms that I was an English professor. He has watched videos of kids with disabilities that I have worked with for years, and heard my stories, and heard me tell more than one person in conversation that I teach teachers how to teach reading. Yet he somehow still thinks I am an English professor. I wouldn't take it to the bank that parents aren't reading.

        I'm not banking on it, but with this group of parents it wouldn't surprise me either if this were true.

        Very true-it is interesting the perceptions we give when we do not realize it! I think we should have asked when and where do you read for enjoyment AND...does your child witness that?
