"SRI gives a lexile level for all 2nd - 10th grade students. This test lets teachers know if students are reading on grade level (or below)."
This test is given 3 times a year to all 9th and 10th graders and places students into one of four categories: Strategic, Intensive, Core, Advanced
The remediation/review will help teachers in lesson planning and differentiating instruction.
