Analytical Reading Inventory

Grades 4-8


What?

  • The ARI is an informal, individualized reading inventory.

  • This inventory will allow you to analyze decoding, fluency, and comprehension.


Who?

  • All students grades 4-8 who scored 325 or below on ELA CST.

  • Grade 2-8 SDC (mild-moderate) and RSP students


When?

  • Students will be tested twice a year.

    • Beginning of the year (the sooner the better, particularly so you have data on your students and can use it for small group instruction)

    • End of 2nd trimester


How?

Step 1- Word List

  • Begin with the word list 2 grade levels below the student’s current grade.

  • Continue administering word lists until student misses 5 words or does not attempt 5 words.

  • Student is given the reading passage in which 1-4 words are missed.


Step 2- Reading Passage

  • Give student the passage that corresponds with the word list results.

  • Read aloud the directions from the top of the teacher recording sheet.

  • Start timer as student begins to read.

  • As student reads, record miscues.

  • Stop timer when student finishes passage and record seconds.

  • Circle fluency rating on teacher

    recording sheet.


Step 3- Retell & Summary

  • Read aloud the retelling directions from the teacher recording sheet.

  • Mark response accordingly.

  • Repeat for summary.


Step 4- Comprehension Questions

  • Ask student the comprehension questions.

  • Record total number of errors.

    Scoring

    + correct

    ½ partial answer

  • incorrect or no response


Step 5- Determining Instructional Level

  • Use the upper right hand corner of the teacher recording sheet to determine the student’s instructional level.


The Gray Zone

  • Questions emerge about the accurate determination of a reading level because sometimes a reader’s miscues count is out of sync with numbers indicated on the Scoring Guide Summary. (upper right hand corner of teacher recording sheet)


Scoring Guide Summary

Word Recognition

Independent 1-2

Instructional 7-8

Frustration 15+

Student score = -13

Comprehension

Independent 0-1

Instructional 2

Frustration 4+

Student score = -3 1/2

To make an accurate determination at any reading level, both quantitative and qualitative factors must be considered.

Comprehension score should guide final reading level.

“The Gray Zone” Example:


Review Oral Reading Miscues Chart

  • Omission

  • Insertion

  • Substitution

  • Aided word (teacher told)

  • Repetition

  • Reversal

    The following miscues are coded but not added into the final miscue count.

    • Self-corrections

    • Hesitations

    • Ignores punctuation
