TPRI/Tejas Lee


The TPRI is a highly reliable early reading assessment designed to identify the reading development of students in kindergarten through third grade. This diagnostic instrument is an easy to use one-on-one assessment which helps teachers provide targeted instruction so that students improve as readers.

The TPRI benchmark assessment is given 3 times/year. At all four grade levels, the TPRI consists of both a Screening and Inventory Section. The Screening Section quickly helps teachers to confidently identify students who may be at risk for reading difficulty. The Inventory Section of the assessment is a diagnostic tool which provides teachers with specific information about a student’s strengths and weakness in the following areas:

Book and Print Awareness 
Phonemic Awareness
Graphophonemic Knowledge and Word Reading
Reading Accuracy
Reading Fluency
Listening Comprehension
Reading Comprehension

Information derived from the TPRI will assist teachers in planning targeted instruction for their students. The Intervention Activities Guide (IAG) gives teachers effective instructional activities to support the reading development of each student.

Tejas Lee

Early identification of reading skills and comprehension development of young students is critical for planning and implementing a successful reading program. "El Inventario de Lectura en Español de Tejas" (Tejas LEE) is a valid and reliable assessment tool that measures student's reading, comprehension, and reading-related skills in Spanish. Designed for use with students in Kindergarten through third grade, the Tejas LEE helps teachers identify student's strengths and problem areas, monitor student progress over the course of the school year, and plan and deliver targeted instruction.

With the Tejas LEE, teachers can focus on helping students learn the reading and reading-related concepts they need so that all students can meet the goal of reading on grade level. The Tejas LEE provides valuable data educators can use to help students develop into proficient, lifelong readers.
