A thorough, standards-based, diagnostic informal reading inventory for measuring the progress of typical, remedial, and gifted readers with step-by-step instructions for administration.
The Analytical Reading Inventory (ARI) is an informal diagnostic tool designed to determine a student’s reading level and to establish an instructional plan for improvement. It is comprised of a series of literature and informational text passages of increasing difficulty, from pre-primer to level nine, and can be used with all readers from the very young to high school students. As a student reads a leveled passage, the examiner records quantitative and qualitative standards data on easy-to-use Examiner’s Passage Record Sheets. The record sheets are comprehensive, making it possible to record and summarize data, identify an instructional focus, and report results.
The Tenth Edition of the ARI supports undergraduate and graduate education students, instructors, school psychologists, and classroom, Title I, and special education teachers, by offering:
The tenth edition of the Analytical Reading Inventory provides an informal reading inventory with highly detailed directions for both beginning and advanced teachers for determining reading levels and skills from primer to ninth grade using narrative and expository text passages. The processing activities and questions for in-class use are helpful to instructors and their students. -- Rosemary E. Garr, University of Maryland
This book is a way for teachers to quickly assess their students’ reading abilities. It has many useful features including case studies, a DVD, word lists, reader summaries that are easy to use and implement, as well as both narrative and expository passages. -- Jessica DeShetler, Heritage Middle School (OH)
