The student will be asked to read a level three word list in order for the teacher to assess word recognition prior to reading a passage during an Informal Reading Inventory. Look at the words on the list; do you know any of these words? Have you seen any of these words in any books youve read?
Do you think the words are hard to pronounce? Have you ever used any of these words in your writing? If yes, which ones? The student will be asked to read Kays Island Home orally. What are your thoughts on this passage? Is Kay happy? Why or why not? Who lives with Kay on the island? What is Kay doing on the island? The student will answer applied and implied questions that relate to the passage.
Look Back: Grades The teacher will ask the student to look back to correct any erroneous answers from the questioning or locate missing information. Think Aloud: Grades The teacher will ask students to think aloud while reading and prompt them to share their thoughts at certain points in the passage Leslie, Locate a passage at the students placement level.
Present the students copy of the first passage to the student, and read the introduction statement to the student. Remove the passage from the students view and ask comprehension questions. Present the student with a different form of inventory at the same grade level.
Ask the student to read the passage silently and look up at you when he or she is finished. If the student met both the criteria word recognition and comprehension for the independent level, move on to the next higher level and administer oral and silent reading. When the student reaches frustration level on the oral passage, stop having the student read to you. Instead read aloud the next passage to the student.
Ask the student comprehension questions to the previous passage.
This inventory is a valuable resource for teachers. It serves as a looking glass into the abilities contained within each student. Through the reading method teachers can most accurately place student within appropriate reading levels.
All inventories require a lot of preparation and usually take an hour to administer.
READING METHOD: QUALITATIVE READING INVENTORY AND INFORMAL READING INVENTORY
It can be time consuming for a teacher. It is certainly worthwhile to spend the time and energy as it is a literacy looking glass with the amount of information that can be gathered. What would it be like to live on an island? Prompt: In this story, Kay lives on an island.
Read to find out what it is like for Kay. Kays Island Home Kay lives on an island far out in the ocean. You may think that it would be fun to live on an island. But Kay is miserable.

On an island 2. Why is Kay unhappy? For example, based on the similar content that occurs across all three narrative forms in ARI e.
With respect to IRI-BR, Burns and Roe state, "Alternate forms testing revealed that the levels indicated by different forms administered to the same students were consistent" p. Also, without a sample description, even if the forms are equivalent for one sample population, given the possible differences across groups, it may not be possible to generalize those results to another student population.
However, these results pertain to a study with fourth-grade students who orally read passages from Forms A and B of the second edition of BRI.
How reliable are informal reading inventories?
New reliability information pertaining to all forms in the current edition and for passages at all levels read orally and silently is needed in order to use parallel forms interchangeably without question. Some of the alternate-form reliability figures reported are lower than is desirable. For example, based on the figures reported by Cooter et al.
The authors also report that due to small sample sizes, they were not able to obtain reliability figures for other grade levels. In some cases, there are not enough data reported for interpreting the degree of reliability.
For example, it is not clear just what variables the reliability coefficients i. For example, Burns and Roe , Johns , and Silvaroli and Wheelock treat vocabulary as an embedded construct contributing to reading comprehension; however, out of five to eight questions, only one or two items are vocabulary related. Sight word vocabulary and word recognition strategies While Cooter et al.
It should be noted that the word list components of the other IRIs reviewed also provide information related more to word recognition than to knowledge of word meanings. Each of the other inventories takes a different approach to the assessment of sight word recognition, as well as general word identification strategies, by including a series of word lists administered at the beginning of the IRI assessment in order to gain insights on a student's word recognition strategies as well as to determine a reading passage starting point.
With regard to CRI-2 and QRI-4, because some of the words were drawn from the reading passages, evaluators can compare word identification abilities in context versus out of context.
These two inventories also allow for making distinctions between words recognized instantly i. BRLI Bader, includes separate lists of "experiential" words i.
Because students are asked to read each item but to explain the meanings only as needed, this assessment appears to provide more information related to sight word vocabulary and word recognition strategies than meaning vocabulary, similar to the other IRI word lists. Information about the development of these word lists, however, or pilot testing of items is lacking.
It should be noted that these assessments are not integral parts of the inventories; instead, they are provided as supplements for optional use. Given the fact that there are other instruments available that are more developmental, systematic, and comprehensive for assessing phonemic awareness, these IRI assessment supplements are not recommended for evaluating children's knowledge in this area.
Phonics As with phonemic awareness, an IRI is not intended to provide a thorough evaluation of a child's phonic knowledge. For this reason, these supplementary assessments are not recommended for evaluating this pillar of reading.
It should be noted that the miscue analysis and word list components see the Vocabulary section featured in most of the IRIs allow the evaluator to gain valuable insights on patterns related to students' word recognition abilities, including insights related to phonics.
In addition, miscue analyses of passages read orally provide the advantage of allowing the tester to observe how a child actually applies phonics skills while reading familiar and unknown words in connected text.

Because of this powerful function, the miscue analysis portion of an IRI should not be skipped or overlooked. All but Woods and Moe suggest, at a minimum, tracking the reading rate, and all but Applegate et al. In some of the IRIs, checklists are provided listing additional aspects of fluency to evaluate, such as pitch, stress, intonation, and use of punctuation, among other qualities observed, to check off as applicable. Woods and Moe also include a four-point fluency scoring guide.
Given the relevance of fluent reading to reading comprehension Allington, , these measures provide valuable data for interpreting the results of an IRI assessment and are recommended. Choosing an IRI One of the purposes of this article is to cross-compare current IRIs with a goal of providing assistance in selecting one that best fits a teacher's needs. Although each IRI has its strengths and limitations, there are also unique characteristics to consider that may sway someone toward using one instrument or another.
For reading professionals who work with diverse populations and are looking for a diagnostic tool to assess the five critical components of reading instruction, the CRI-CFC, in Spanish and English Cooter et al.
The CRI-2 Applegate et al. In all cases, caution is advised for assessment components lacking technical rigor or for use of alternate forms without proven reliability. Some of the IRIs had features worth noting because they made the complex manuals and various components easier to navigate and use.
As a feature of its newest edition, CRI-2 Applegate et al. It should be noted that the theoretical orientation of the evaluator and the technical features e.Stu- Keywords: dents read for 1 min from three leveled texts that corresponded to their instructional level as mea- Informal reading inventory sured by an IRI, and the percentage of words read correctly was recorded.
It hides in the seaweed. In a study with students aged 8 to 18 years, the retell task of an informal assessment was much less sensitive to decoding ability as measured by word recognition of isolated real words and word attack of nonsense words than other standardized measures of comprehension Keenan et al. The student will be asked to read Kays Island Home orally. Klingbeil, D. It has bright orange fins and a blue tail.
McGlinchey, M. What kinds of hobbies are you into?
In addition, there is a place on the evaluation sheet for checking off whether a student's retelling is organized; however, criteria for making this judgment are lacking. Present the students copy of the first passage to the student, and read the introduction statement to the student.
