Charles Fuhrken


For the past 12 years, Charles has worked in assessment for three major test publishers and on testing programs for many states, including California, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas and Virginia, as well as on norm-referenced achievement tests such as Stanford and Metropolitan. After completing a PhD in curriculum and instruction at the University of Texas at Austin, Charles began writing down everything he could think of to help teachers who are preparing students for their state's reading test. The results are his two books: What Every Elementary Teacher Needs to Know About Reading Tests (From Someone Who Has Written Them) and What Every Middle School Teacher Needs to Know About Reading Tests.
