ReadReady (formerly known as the ”RISE”)

ReadReady is a web-administered diagnostic reading assessment for students in grades 3–12. ReadReady measures foundational reading skills including word recognition & decoding, vocabulary, morphology, sentence processing, reading efficiency, and reading comprehension. Each subtest provides unique information about students’ strengths and weaknesses in these skill areas. The assessment has multiple forms and is vertically scaled, allowing it to be used for progress monitoring, measuring student growth, or detecting changes in reading as a result of intervention. The assessment was formerly called the RISE (Reading Inventory and Scholastic Evaluation) and was developed from IES grants (R305G040065, R305F100005, and R305A190522)
