Description
For courses in reading assessment and diagnosis.

Research-based, clinically verified tests help users assess and diagnose students’ reading abilities (Preprimer - Ninth Grade)
The Ekwall/Shanker Reading Inventory (ESRI) features forty diagnostic tests to help educators, school psychologists, resource teachers, and reading specialists successfully assist individual students in developing their reading ability. This comprehensive guide can be used to measure nine different areas of reading, including: oral and silent reading ability; listening comprehension; phonemic awareness; concepts about print; letter knowledge; basic sight vocabulary; phonics; structural analysis; context clues; dictionary skills; fluency skills; vocabulary; reading comprehension; and reading interests.

Adaptable to most reading programs, the 7th Edition fits well with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. User-friendly examples, directions, and printable testing materials make it easy for pre- and in-service teachers to administer assessments, interpret results, and prepare diagnostic reports. Using the results of the ESRI, educators are able to differentiate instruction in order to successfully develop all readers.
