Scholastic Reading Inventory

Our school has used the Scholastic Reading Inventory for several years as a tool to assess independent reading comprehension. Initially we were told all students take the test independently with no help - teachers were not allowed tell students words. Recently some grade levels decided to give the same accommodations that students would receive on state testing and so they are helping students with words. We report these scores to parents so we need to make sure we are all being consistent in how we are giving the test and there is a huge disagreement in how it should be given. Thoughts from others who give the SRI? Do you help students with words? Thanks!

I give it independently, but I can't say that all teachers follow the same protocol at our school. I believe that giving words can invalidate this test. One of the reading skills students need is using context clues to figure out words they don't know. If the teacher gives it to them, that purpose is defeated.
