The Reading Inventory

The Reading Inventory (formerly known as Scholastic Reading Inventory, SRI) is a computer-adaptive reading comprehension assessment that provides an assessment of student reading levels, reported in lexile measures. The teacher and administrator component of The Reading Inventory is the Student Achievement Manager (SAM). Test results are automatically calculated and sent to SAM, which generates a variety of reports that help teachers and leaders monitor student progress and make data-driven decisions.

The Reading Inventory:
•  Provides bench-marking assessment for screening
•  Allows teachers and leaders to forecast and track growth
•  Generates immediate actionable reports for students, parents and administrators
•  Encourages accountability
•  Reports on the Lexile Framework for Reading
•  Matches readers to leveled text
