This paper compares formal assessment tests to informal reading and writing inventories. The paper looks at how the tests are prepared and administered.

From the Paper:

"Tests used as a basis of academic assessment have been characterized as falling into one of two categories. Formal assessment tests are norm-referenced or criterion-referenced tests that are administered in a controlled setting in which directions cannot be altered and students respond to items they have not seen in instruction. Informal reading and writing inventories are commercially prepared or teacher student-made tests in which students read orally and retell and or answer comprehension questions over a passage."
