A popular classroom assessment tool, this supplement is widely used by pre-service and in-service teachers to assess or test students' reading progress. It also serves as a practical guide for reading specialists and as a focus for in-service workshops. Unique to this text are its K-12 scope and its abundant strategies (including forms) for assessing students' vocabulary, phonics, and comprehension of text.

This resource was shared with the 2nd grade teacher who was interested in leveling her students by using the informal reading inventory. I explained the procedure for administering the reading passages and scoring the passages to identify the instructional level of her students.
