Can students take the phonics inventory without taking the reading inventory first? I have licenses for both and current Lexile data on all students I would like to test.

    Yes, students do not need to take the Reading Inventory to take the Phonics Inventory. As long as your current Lexile data is from the Reading Inventory, I do not see a need to re-test. If the Lexile level is from a different source than the Reading Inventory, you will need to give them the Reading Inventory so that you will be able to compare results from the same test. Lexile levels from other sources are usually not native Lexiles and are not useful for studying results from instruction.
