The TPRI is a highly reliable early reading assessment designed to identify the reading development of students in kindergarten through third grade.

This easy to use one-on-one assessment consists of both a Screening Section and an Inventory Section. With a short series of student-friendly tasks, the Screening Section allows a teacher to quickly identify students who may be at risk for reading difficulty. The Inventory Section engages the student with inviting tasks and entertaining stories, while giving the teacher an opportunity to gather more data to help match reading instruction with specific student needs.

The TPRI is a diagnostic instrument which helps teachers target instruction so that students improve as readers.  The TPRI provides a comprehensive Intervention Activities Guide to assist teachers in planning targeted instruction based on their assessment data.  The TPRI also provides a wide range of resources to help teachers understand their results, group students for small group instruction, and develop effective lessons.  Progress monitoring kits are also available.
