Classroom Reading Inventory by Nicholas J. Silvaroli, Warren Wheelock

This trusted reading inventory resource is ideal for pre-service and in-service teachers who use an informal reading inventory test to help identify students' reading problems. A classic in the field,it is the leading reading inventory text,brief and easy to use in a consumable,spiral-bound format. The CRI (Classroom Reading Inventory) is specially prepared for in- and pre-service teachers who have little or no experience with informal reading inventories. It is designed to be administered in fifteen minutes or less.

Form A follows a subskills format and Form B follows a reader response format designed around the predicting and retelling of stories. Teachers can test reading comprehension and word-recognition abilities,and also inferential and critical reading and thinking abilities. Both forms include a pretest and a posttest.

Eighty percent of the stories used for the CRI test in the ninth edition are new. They are more contemporary and inclusive,and reflect multicultural themes. Most stories are now 30% longer. Finger tabs have been added so the user can flip more easily to major sections. Also available to the instructor is an audio tape for practice scoring and interpretation.
