Grading Guidelines

TPRI - Texas Primary Reading Inventory

The state of Texas requires a reading assessment for all K-2 students to be administered three times a year.  The assessment data provides information about the percentage of students who are “developed” or “still developing” in certain early reading skills, such as phonemic awareness, graphophonemic knowledge, reading accuracy, fluency and comprehension. Using TPRI data, along with other assessments, BISD is able to identify students who may have reading difficulties and provide targeted intervention to help students reach grade level goals.
