Overview

The fourth edition of the Ekwall/Shanker Reading Inventory (ESRI) updates and expands this highly successful informal reading inventory. The new ESRI provides an expanded battery of 38 diagnostic tests in 11 different areas that enable the teacher-candidate, classroom teacher, special education teacher, or reading specialist to assess the full-range of students' reading abilities. The fourth edition provides for flexible assessment to match the needs of the individuals who will use it. The ESRI may be used as a quick screening device, for placement of students in groups or classes, for a brief assessment, or for comprehensive individual diagnosis. In this edition, specific directions guide the novice teacher or the experienced specialist in conducting the kinds of diagnosis appropriate for each setting. Based on the time-tested criteria of the informal reading inventory, the research-based, clinically verified ESRI is the most coherent and comprehensive reading assessment instrument ever developed. It provides clear, easy-to-follow instructions that tell the examiner exactly how to go about conducting and interpreting the diagnosis. The instructions for both administering the test and formulating a diagnosis have been carefully refined in this edition to make them even more user-friendly. For anyone working in areas of Reading Problems, Reading Diagnosis/Remediation, and Elementary Reading Methods.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Ekwall/Shanker is more than just a reading inventory. It contains many other assessments for assessing reading. A reading specialist, classroom teacher, resource teacher or school psychologists have a wealth of reading assessments in one book.” – Catherine Shiel, Stevenson University

Truthfully, I do not know of any real competition for this product. This book has so many worthwhile and useful assessments in one organized text. From what I can see, there are not really many other comprehensive assessment products like this book so far.” – Ilene Heller, Sanford Middle School, Seminole County, FL
