The Developmental Literacy Inventory is an informal reading inventory and more.  Its graded word recognition lists and reading passages, all written especially for this instrument, allow teachers to assess students’ silent and oral reading comprehension, fluency, and word recognition with narrative, social studies, and science passages at reading levels from Primer to high school.  Word recognition lists, spelling inventories, and an emergent literacy instrument that includes assessment of phonemic awareness and concept of word enables teachers to diagnostically assess students from kindergarten to high school.  Comprehension questions about each reading passage tap a wide range of comprehension skills including recall of explicitly stated information, inferential thinking, and vocabulary usage.  Two equivalent forms of the inventory allow retesting at the same levels with different passages.

Developmental Literacy Inventory, 1/e

 

From three key reading specialists, the Developmental Literacy Inventory (DLI) is a versatile instrument for assessing the reading-related strengths and needs of individual students. This new tool presents emergent literacy assessments, graded word lists, reading passages, phonics assessments, and more–all written especially for this instrument–that enable teachers to assess students’ print concepts and early reading knowledge, silent and oral reading comprehension, fluency, orthographic awareness, and word recognition. Content ranges across reading levels, from primary to high school, and includes narrative, social studies, and science passages. Unlike any other instrument, this approach reports scores as grade equivalents and Lexiles©, simplifying the task of matching students to thousands of books at their independent and instructional reading levels. The DLI is research-based and classroom-ready for screening, diagnostic, and monitoring assessment.

 

“This [instrument] is extremely appealing to me as an educator who deals with struggling readers each year. This is a great tool to allow me to focus on the student’s particular weaknesses.”–Susan Hampton, Virginia Middle School, Bristol, Virginia

 

“The authors have done a fantastic job of organizing the information in a logical sequence.  Any teacher could use one or more of the inventories by subject to assess where their individual students are in reading ability.”  –Diana Carr, Elgin Junior High School, Elgin, Ohio
