Matching student needs to targeted resources can mean the difference between literacy success and a lifetime of struggle—in and out of the classroom. How can you ensure students are placed into the right type of intervention for the right amount of time?
The Phonics Inventory empowers educators to quickly identify which students are in need of intensive foundational skills intervention and which would be better served with resources focused on comprehension and fluency.
Fast, accurate, and scalable—Phonics Inventory takes the guesswork out of accurately placing students into appropriate reading intervention programs.
Reliably screen all students across your class, school, or district for an accurate and easy-to-interpret representation of proficiency levels, intervention needs, and resource allocation needs.
Place students into targeted intervention programs designed to deliver personalized instruction to close proficiency gaps and set them on the path to success.
Monitor each student's progress in decoding, sight word recognition, and comprehension to ensure the effectiveness of intervention programs and provide additional resources where needed.
Phonics Inventory takes the guesswork out of process by providing a reliable tool for pinpointing the exact nature of your students' intervention needs with a foundational reading assessment designed to measure fluency of phonological decoding and sight word recognition in older, struggling students.
Which of your students are best served by Phonics Inventory?
Administer Practice Tests ahead of time to warm students up by allowing them to get comfortable with the testing interface.
Letter Recognition Test
Measure students’ ability to identify lowercase letters and read aloud.
Sight Word Recognition Test
Assess students’ knowledge of high-frequency sight words by asking them to overlook orthographically similar words that appear as distractions.
Nonword Decoding Test
Determine students’ pure decoding skills in a decontextualized environment by asking them to decode nonsense words that follow the structural conventions of the English language but have no meanings.
Screening and Placement Report:
Reports on accuracy and fluency scores to determine if a decoding problem is impacting reading comprehension.
Student Progress Report:
Reports on growth over time to inform grouping for differentiated instruction.
District/School Status Report:
Reports on school and district proficiency levels to inform curriculum planning and resource allocation.
District/School Growth Report:
Informs administrators about the effectiveness of their intervention strategies to determine if additional resources are needed.
Recognizing the value of a strong home-school connection, Phonics Inventory provides educators with templates for keeping parents up to date on their child’s progress.
Sent home prior to a student’s assessment, this letter template is available in English and Spanish and explains the purpose of the assessments.
Sent home after each test administration, this report allows you to report data from the most recent assessment and add comments relevant to the specific student.
Developed in partnership with nation's leading literacy authors and experts, Phonics Inventory was built on decades of experience and scientifically based research.
