Real reading progress in K-3
The research-based system trusted nationwide
How can K–3 teachers identify struggling readers early, deliver data-informed instruction targeted to students’ needs, and make sure their interventions are really working? Now there’s a simple answer: TPRI®, the research-based system that helps teachers teach and helps ensure that students make real reading progress.
Shaped by the feedback of thousands of educators and used successfully in more than 75,000 classrooms across the country, TPRI® solves key challenges for everyone:
- teachers are empowered with everything they need to link assessment data with targeted interventions and solve their students’ reading problems.
- students who may be at risk for reading failure get individualized help before problems escalate.
- schools get a detailed overview on every student and classroom, so they’ll have the accurate data they need to make critical decisions about instruction and professional development.

Administer the screening section to your students. (Classroom teachers should administer TPRI to their own students; if there are multiple teachers, the teacher most responsible for reading instruction should administer TPRI)
Once you identify children who may be at risk, conduct a more in-depth assessment of struggling students’ skills in key areas
Target instruction to your students’ needs with the Intervention Activities Guide, which gives you hundreds of activities linked to the reading skills assessed with TPRI
