Idaho Reading Indicator | Kimberly
From the Idaho State Department of Education:
The Idaho Reading Initiative, enacted by the Idaho Legislature, was designed to ensure that all children in the State of Idaho will master the skills they need to become successful readers. Endless research-based studies show reading skills are directly related to a child's success in school. It is our goal as the State Department of Education to work with schools, teachers, and administrators to promote students' reading success!
Idaho Code §33-1614 requires K-3 students in Idaho to be assessed as they develop critical reading skills. The purpose of the assessment, the Idaho Reading Indicator (IRI), is to indicate which children are most likely going to be at-risk of failure with skills that are a prerequisite for being successful readers throughout life. The state K-3 assessment test results shall be reviewed by school personnel for the purpose of providing necessary interventions to sustain or improve student reading skills.
The Kimberly School District uses the IRI scores to help identify how well students are progressing in reading.
