Title:

InSight: Measuring Three Domains

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS:

InSight is a computer-adaptive assessment that measures three dimensions essential to successful independent silent reading: capacity (comprehension and vocabulary knowledge), efficiency (reading rate), and reading motivation. InSight typically requires about 30 minutes to complete. InSight results align well with the results of other common third-party assessments.

“InSight was developed to provide an assessment that is useful in the 21st century standards-based environment.”
