Abstract/Description: Assuming that the social studies teacher should shoulder responsibility for developing reading skills, what steps are necessary in planning a program aimed at the development of reading skills in the social studies classroom? This paper will treat only one step: evaluation of the present position of the student and/or class in terms of skill development and ability levels. The author shall attempt to ascertain whether or not it is possible for the classroom teacher to determine present achievement levels in terms of specific skills needed in reading social studies materials through an item analysis of student performance on two commonly used standardized social studies tests. This will, in effect, be testing the thesis: Through item analysis of tests concerned with reading skills in the social studies it is possible to determine achievement levels of a class or individual accurately enough, in terms of specific skills, to design a program for skill improvement.
