Helps teachers understand student reading as it develops! 


The Adolescent Literacy Inventory is a revolutionary new assessment tool that makes it possible for middle and high school teachers to learn more about their students’ reading and writing abilities than ever before.  Created by two premier adolescent literacy and literacy assessment experts, the ALI uses passages from actual science, social, studies, English/Language Arts, and math textbooks, allowing teachers and literacy specialists to efficiently diagnose students’ academic literacy abilities.  The ALI provides teachers with information not only on reading skill and strategy but also on how students use these in content areas, so teachers can determine the most appropriate text adaptations and instructional strategies for their students. 

 

Features of the book include: 

  • Focuses on adolescent literacy. 
  • Comprised of assessment passages from actual textbooks for grades 6-12.
  • Offers teachers several assessment options, including an interactive assessment option.
  • Includes a “decision tree” that prompts teachers to ask what information they desire about each student, their level of experience and knowledge, and then tailors the most appropriate assessment option.
  • The “cloze-maze” approach to passage placement allows for extremely accurate placement decisions.

 

The Adolescent Literacy Inventory   allows pre-service, in-service, and reading specialists to determine the best assessment path for each student. 


Allows for the assessment of the five pillars of reading
