The current edition of the most comprehensive reading inventory. Based on the latest cognitive research, The Bader Reading and Language Inventory offers a range of devices and graded passages to test reading ability through the twelfth grade level.

The inventory includes pre-literacy and word-identification tests to ensure a comprehensive assessment and an arithmetic test to determine competence independent of verbal skills. It also provides instructions for administering and evaluating the tests and a scoring guide for each passage. In addition, experiential word lists permit testing of individuals with little formal schooling and those for whom English is a second language. Also includes several unique sections: "Classroom Teacher's Reading Referral" (passages for classroom assessment); "Interest and Attitude" (determine a students' optimal instructional environment); and "Portfolio Assessment" (guidelines for classroom use, establishing criteria, and selecting appropriate portions of the inventory). The third edition of The Bader Reading and Language Inventory now includes a separate booklet of reading passages, a greater emphasis on portfolio and "authentic" assessment, and the inclusion of an ESL test.
