As mentioned, the students took the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI). The SRI "is a reading assessment program which provides immediate, actionable data on students' reading levels and growth over time" (http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/sri_reading_assessment/index.htm). I use this data point along with the STAR reading assessment and the Lead21 Placement assessment as a way to make the most accurate decisions on what differentiation I need to consider for each individual student. We will be taking the Lead21 Placement assessment tomorrow so that I can begin our Lead21 reading series next week. I am so very proud of all students as they are doing their very best for each reading assessment.
