Example: Give them a paragraph to read with a written question and several written answers. Try that 4 or 5 times. If they get the right answer every time they are probably reading at that level fairly well. Try at higher levels (multiple paragraphs and then maybe a full story from a newspaper).
Test: Have them read the paragraph and questions
below and select the correct answers.
Paul and Mary are traveling to visit
their niece, Barbara. She just graduated from college and is looking for
a job. Hopefully one in marketing. She hopes to buy a home one day.
During the visit she will take them to some of the local sites,
including the Zoo and the worlds largest ball of twine. Paul and
Mary are looking forward to eating out because Barbara lives near a lot
of restaurants. They especially like Indian restaurants because
they like spicy food. But they don't like Mexican food or fast
food. They can't stay very long because Mary only has 1 week of time off
