I have given the Phonics Inventory each time I have given the Reading Inventory. Each time my students in System 44 have regressed on the Phonics Inventory dropping from developing to beginning. I try to prepare them by telling them that this test is about speed and accuracy, but I have not seen an improvement. Also, I have noticed that my SPED students may progress on the 3rd Ri, but many dropped significantly for this last one. I even deleted the scores and made any student that decreased retake it. Some students retook the these test 3 times this week. Any suggestions?
