* denotes required field

The PSI is offered as a school site license, enabling all educators in a school to use a common diagnostic tool for years to come. A license key will be emailed to one educator per school.*

The Phonics Screener for Intervention (PSI), Version 3.0 is a brief and easy-to-administer informal diagnostic assessment designed to pinpoint the specific decoding needs of students who have poor reading accuracy. Information from the PSI eliminates guessing and leads directly to Tier 2 and 3 focused intervention instruction.

PSI 3.0 assesses phonics skills from basic to complex, in order of 95 Percent Group’s Phonics Continuum. The skills assessed correlate to the skills in the Phonics Lesson Library™, the Multisyllable Routine Cards, and the Phonics Chip Kit™ instructional materials. The PSI includes:
  • Getting Started Guide
  • User’s Manual
  • Student Materials Booklet* (including Forms A, B, and C)
  • Student Scoring Forms* (Forms A, B, and C)
  • Classroom Grouping Worksheets
  • Error Pattern Analysis Worksheets
* Purchase of the PSI includes one sample printed Student Materials Booklet. Additional copies are available for purchase.

What Does the PSI Do? 
Identifies mastery and deficit in Basic Phonics, Advanced Phonics, and Multisyllable Words, as well as Sight Words (Dolch 220)
The Multisyllable Words section assesses the six syllable types using two-syllable pseudowords:
  • Closed Syllables
  • Long Vowel Silent-e Syllables
  • Open Syllables
  • Vowel Team Syllables
  • Consonant-le Syllables
  • Vowel-r Syllables
Helps teachers pinpoint deficits so that instruction can be targeted to close the gap for struggling students 
Assists in grouping students of similar needs for intervention instruction

Who Needs the PSI
Students in grade 1 and up who have poor reading accuracy (Letter Names and Sounds can be used with students in K–1) 
Students who are accurate but slow or unable to read text passages at benchmark
Students who are below benchmark on the oral reading
fluency portion of a curriculum-based measurement

How Do You Use the PSI?

Any school staff member well trained in phonics, including:
Classroom teachers  
Special education teachers
Reading specialists 
School psychologists

Please note: The PSI 3.0 is a site license for one school only. Site licenses may not be shared.
