Reading Inventory (RI)
The English Learner Master Plan for English Learners and Standard English Learners outlines the reclassification requirements for English Learners:
- Passing score in the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC)
- Teacher evaluation based on student semester grades (C or better in English Language Arts or LTEL class)
- Parent consultation and approval
- Basic Skills Assessment (passing score on RI)
The RI is a reading assessment that measures students’ level of reading comprehension and reports it using the Lexile Framework. The RI is designed to evaluate a student’s reading ability, monitor reading progress, and match students to books at their reading level, which helps to make reading rewarding, constructive, and enjoyable. The RI is a computer based assessment and should last no more than 30 minutes. The results will be reported based upon the student’s grade and reading level. A passing score of basic or above meets the reclassification criteria for the “basic skills test.” Below are the RI score ranges:
The Los Angeles Unified School District will be administering the RI to English Learners in order to meet the “basic skills test” criteria for reclassification in grades 6-12. RI will be administered twice this school year.
