Iri. informal read inv. -(b) assessment & diagnostic teaching what are informal reading inventories (ris)? assessment & diagnostic teaching - an informal reading inventory is an assessment that uses a series of graded word lists and passages to determines astds strength and weakness in word recognition and comprehension. the technique is also used to id a students independent, instructional, and frustration reading levels. in addition, if the passages are read to the std, an informal reading inventory gives some indicatiopn of a stds level of listening comprehension. iris are individually administered diagnostic assessments designed to evaluate a number of different aspects of students reading performance. typically, iris consist of graded word lists and passages ranging from preprimer level to middle or high school levels (paris & carpenter, 2003). after reading each leveled passage, a student responds orally to follow-up questions assessing comprehension and recall. using comprehension and word recognition scores for students who read the passages orally, along with additional factors taken into consideration (e.g., prior knowledge, fluency, emotional status, among other possible factors), teachers or other education-related professionals determine students reading levels. they also use this information to match students with appropriate reading materials, place children in guided reading groups, design instruction to address students noted strengths and needs, and document reading progress over time. while iris serve a variety of purposes, perhaps their greatest value is linked to the important role they play in helping educators to diagnose the gaps in the abilities of readers who struggle the most.
