Morris Informal Reading Inventory by Darrell MorrisIn one concise volume, Darrell Morris provides a complete tool for assessing students' reading ability. Unlike most informal reading inventories (IRIs), Morris's approach incorporates measures of automaticity (word recognition and fluency) together with oral reading accuracy and comprehension. This results in more efficient, accurate, and thorough assessments. Included are an examiner's manual and all test materials for the basic IRI (grades 2-8) plus a separate beginning reading inventory (grades K-1). In a large-size spiral-bound format for ease of use, the book features more than 90 pages of word/letter lists, illustrated reading passages, and other test materials, all with permission to photocopy.

Bader Reading and Language Inventory by Lois A. Bader; Daniel L. PearceThe Bader Reading and Language Inventory, 6th edition, was constructed for use by teachers for K-12 and adult students, reading specialists, and clinicians. The design of this inventory allows examiners the flexibility to obtain information for measuring a reader's growth, assessing the effectiveness of specific reading approaches, and diagnosing specific literacy needs. As experienced teachers look for patterns of behavior to observe learner's strengths and needs. This can be accomplished with an assessment model that includes personal interviews and student reflection, observations, informal and formal tests and diagnostic teaching. The Bader inventory provides several valuable, research-based tools and guides to complement this assessment model balancing assessment practice without overtesting students.

The Critical Reading Inventory by Anthony J. Applegate; Mary DeKonty Applegate; Kathleen Benson QuinnThis is the only reading inventory on the market to support the treatment of reading as a "thinking" process through questions and assessments that measure not only readers' ability to recall facts, but also whether they can draw logical conclusions about those facts and respond critically to those conclusions. This book includes both narrative and expository readers' passages for use with pre-K readers through readers in grade 9; and is written in an accessible, inviting style. Through the use of longer passages, multi-level assessments, and case studies, the authors provide a truly effective means to secure a differential analysis of a child's reading comprehension performance. Three distinct levels of comprehension questions: text-based, inferential, and critical-assist in grouping readers by ability levels, from simple recall to critical engagement with text. Case studies of three levels of diagnostic analysis helps teachers understand the difference between readers who are having genuine difficulty and readers who are simply reluctant. Rubrics for retelling and for fluency stress that word recognition must be assessed within the context of comprehension. Inclusion of the simplified miscue analysis technique highlights both the reader's strategies and his/her orientation.
