A 50-word selection is usually used for the preprimer level, 100-word passages at primer and first-grade levels, and 200-word passages at second grade and above. For each reading passage, a brief introduction including background information should be prepared (e.g., aquot;Read to find what Sam did on his tripaquot;). ... After selecting the graded passages, five to ten comprehension questions should be prepared. ... To administer the IRI, a period free of interruptions should be available.
