Idaho Reading Indicator

The Idaho Reading Initiative (IRI), 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. The IRI is an early reading screener for students in K-3rd grade. The screener is mandatory for all Idaho students in the Fall and Spring with an optional Winter assessment. Different grade levels screen letter sound fluency, letter name fluency and reading skills. The screener is set up with letter naming in kindergarten to reading fluency in third grade.


Current IRI will be given to all Idaho students SY 2017-2018.

This assessment is given to students who qualify for accommodations in grades K-2nd. The IRI passages used are the same passages used for students with disabilities. Please indicate the score and growth on the test results file with general student IRI test.

Pilot Application 2017-2018
We have had overwhelming interest in the pilot and have created an application to help us identify schools for participation. If you are interested in participating in the IRI pilot (ISIP by Istation) beginning Fall 2017, please review the Technology Readiness Checklist and fill out the Pilot Application. Return the application by April 28, 2017, to Heidi Arrate.

Districts can apply for the inclusion of up to two (2) schools in the pilot. The information in the application will help us ensure we have representation from all six (6) regions of the state and a sample representing Idaho student populations. Pilot Schools will be notified no later than May 26, 2017.
