Informal Reading Inventories: A Survey Among Professionals.
Johns, Jerry L.
A reading conference in the Chicago area provided a setting in which to systematically explore the views of 24 professionals regarding a number of statements about Informal Reading Inventories (IRIs). The results obtained from a 24-item questionnaire indicated that professionals perceive IRIs as instruments which generate more questions than answers, although use of the instruments was frequent. It is concluded that the raising of questions about problems with IRIs is a healthy state of affairs. (RB)
