Score reporting
and test design data
This is a criterion-referenced assessment — no normative data is provided. The book provides score sheets that the teacher completes on each student as they administer the inventory.
Notes The inventory begins with an Interest/Attitude interview one for primary-level and one for upper-level students. The assessment portion of the inventory is divided into five forms: A, B, C, D, and E. Each of Forms A, B, C, and D includes three sections: sentences to determine the initial starting point (i.e., passage selection), the reading passages, and matching assessment protocols. Form E is only used with students who read at the upper high school levels. In Forms A, B, C, and D - the section entitled, "Sentences for Initial Passage Selection" ranges from Level 1 through Level 9 (If students do not perform well on the Level 1 sentences, you can administer the Preprimer and Primer passages). All passages are leveled such that Level PP corresponds to beginning first-grade reading difficulty and Level 12 corresponds to 12th-grade difficulty. RIC reading levels can be translated into Guided reading levels. A Spanish version of this assessment is also available.
