Highly respected scholars and researchers Lauren Leslie and JoAnne Caldwell have incorporated the latest reading research, in line with No Child Left Behind Reading First components.

In addition, it provides suggestions for intervention instruction, procedures for assessment of strategic reading, and inclusion of results in classroom portfolios. The QRI-4 Continues to Garner Praise: ldquo;The passages have been carefully designed to reflect the material in basal readers and expository texts used in schools. Therefore, the information derived from the QRI will be immediately useful for classroom teachers and reading specialists. There is a valid and reliable connection between the results obtained from the QRI and individualized instruction.rdquo; Peggy Snowden, SUNY - Plattsburgh ldquo;Strengths of the [QRI] include its strong research base, constructed as it were by reading scientists, its history of revision to reflect the growing knowledge base in reading, and its versatility in investigating reading behavior; these aspects distinguish the QRI from its IRI competitors.rdquo; Bruce Murray, Auburn University Whatrsquo;s New in the QRI-4? bull; bull;NEW!
