Cillizza, Joseph; Devine, John M.
The introduction of this teaching module states that successful construction and implementation of a reading curriculum which meets and satisfies the growth potential of individual students depends on the teacher's ability to assess individual needs. The Individual Reading Inventory (IRI) provides a diagnostic framework for integrating and synthesizing previous modules into cohesive reading programs. The purpose of this module is to enable participants to (a) define the four reading levels that the IRI measures; and (b) analyze the reading behavior of students based on the informational yield of an IRI, and determine at what level the students function. Participants complete a preassessment test, choose tasks from a list of alternatives, and conclude the module with a postassessment test. (PB)
