Formerly known as Scholastic Reading Inventory, Reading Inventory (RI) is the same research-based, adaptive reading assessment program for students in Grades K–12 that measures reading comprehension on the Lexile Framework® for Reading. The most powerful feature of the RI is its ability to administer fast and reliable low-stakes assessment to inform instruction and make accurate placement recommendations.
The RI app provides an accurate measure of reading ability and text difficulty on a single vertical scale. With this clear and immediate view of what students can do and are positioned to learn next, educators can set rigorous goals, as recommended by the Common Core State Standards.
RI is an objective, research-based assessment of reading comprehension skills for:
• Universal Screening
• Instructional Placement
• Benchmarking Progress
*This app is a free download, available only to HMH Reading Inventory customers. Users must have an active internet connection.
