This inventory has many improvements from prior Johns editions. As always, the Johns is easy to administer. This version provides accurate instructional reading levels in a timely fashion with improved student texts and comprehension questions. The CD is easy to use and simplifies copying. As a teacher, this purchase is worthy of my time and money.

Immediate results from the assessments. Not as easy to use as Marie Clay's running Records, but all inclusive. The CD-ROM is great for reproducables, but many pages have to be pulled out of the book and put in page protectectors. Still a great method to diagnose and assess children's reading. One of those college books you will keep.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for professionals who can take the time to learn to give this kind of informal reading assessment. The format is very organized, clear, and easy to read. The author has numerous years of experience as a teacher/educator and it is apparent in the assesment he has designed. The information the assessment generates is very useful.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a terrific informal assessment tool kit. The book comes with a large reference book and a smaller spiral activity book. The forms are boldly printed in easy to read typeface.

It provides easy to follow examples for impelementing the assessment devices. The manual is very large an difficult to copy and handle.

However, the publishers included a multimedia CD which includes video clips, performance booklets, summary sheets, annotated bibliograpy on IRIs.

I will have to pay to have the larger book spiraled at the local office store so that it will be easier to copy and handle.

This product is similiar to the Flynt-Cooter Reading Inventory for the Classroom. The Basic Reading Inventory is nominally priced.

It can be used to assess pre-primer through 12th grade. It is the best IRI because it contains all the elements of an IRI but not the huge price tag.

This is a decent reading assessment. I use it frequently as an Education Specialist. However, I do find the results to be a little inconsistent with other reading tests.
The worksheets are teacher friendly and easy to use.

I use this book all the time. I teach special education and it is a great help in progress monitoring my students in reading fluency and comprehension. It comes with a CD Rom as well which makes it really convenient. The techniques are easy to understand and learn. I use the results when I am writing IEPs.

The BRI is a great informal reading assessment tool, and is very easy to use. I am using it as an undergraduate, and I have successfully administered it already! The disc is extremely helpful -- the video clips really helped prepare me to administer the test by myself.

This is an excellent resource for all reading teachers. There are several levels and forms of the Basic Reading Inventory, along with clear and complete instructions for its use. I highly recommend this book set.
