Research-based and clinically verified, the Ekwall/Shanker Reading Inventory supports the efforts of teacher candidates, classroom teachers, school psychologists, resource teachers, and reading specialists to differentiate instruction and assess the full range of students’ reading abilities.

The Ekwall/Shanker Reading Inventory (ESRI) has helped educators successfully assist students in developing their reading ability effectively through five previous editions. This new edition updates the inventory to further support the efforts of teachers in differentiating instruction in order to be even more effective as they work with all readers. Adaptable to most reading programs, the ESRI fits well with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and can be used to assess a wide range of students’ reading abilities.

Forty different diagnostic tests help educators measure fourteen different areas of reading. These tests measure oral and silent reading ability (including reading comprehension), listening comprehension, phonemic awareness, concepts about print, letter knowledge, basic sight vocabulary, phonics, structural analysis, context clues, dictionary skills, fluency skills, vocabulary, and reading interests.
