Score reporting
and test design data
This is a criterion-referenced assessment. No normative data is available. Reliability and validity data are available from the publisher.

TPRI® is a complete solution for assessing and improving the reading skills of K-3 students who receive primary reading instruction in English. Used in more than 75,000 classrooms across the country, TPRI® helps teachers identify students’ strengths and problem areas early and provide effective, data-informed instruction.

The TPRI® system guides teachers through every step of improving reading outcomes for all students: Screening, Diagnosis, Intervention, and Monitoring. Teachers start with a brief, reliable universal screener that identifies students at risk for reading difficulties. Once screening has identified children who may be at risk, teachers use the Inventory Section to conduct a more in-depth assessment of struggling students' skills in key areas. Teachers then target instruction to their students' needs with the Intervention Activities Guide. With the brief Progress Monitoring Assessments—one kit for emerging readers, one for beginning readers—teachers will monitor student progress in just a few minutes.
