CARI stands for Content Area Reading Indicators, and is a formative assessment for 7th to 9th grade students. The CARI is directly aligned with the Common Core Standards in Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies and includes a Daze comprehension, a Silent Reading (SR) comprehension, and an Oral Reading (OR) measure. Each measure is arranged in triads which include one science passage, one social studies passage, and one prose passage.
This training will provide participants with the information necessary to administer and score the CARI assessments. Participants will still need to review the administration and scoring procedures and have opportunities for additional practice prior to using the assessment with students.
