The Qualitative Reading Inventory continues to emphasize the authentic assessment of children's reading abilities, from the earliest emergent readers to advanced readers. This popular resource provides graded word lists and numerous passages designed to assess a student's oral reading accuracy, rate of reading and comprehension of passages read orally and silently. Several unique features set it apart from other resources in the field, including narrative and expository passages at each level from pre-primer through high school, as well as all self-contained selections that are highly representative of the structure and topics of materials found in basal readers and content-area textbooks.

In the 7th Edition, all sections have been rewritten to make it easier for all teachers to use QRI-7 to assess students' reading abilities. Additional figures, tables and boxes are included in all sections to allow you to more quickly scan for information.
