Preschool Early Literacy Indicator (PELI) for TK
The Preschool Early Literacy Indicator (PELI) is a storybook-embedded assessment of essential pre-literacy and oral language skills needed for kindergarten. The assessment is designed to identify children who are experiencing difficulties acquiring these skills with intent to provide the instructional support needed to improve future reading outcomes. The assessment is designed for preschool and pre-kindergarten students (ages 3-5). PELI measures alphabet knowledge, vocabulary and oral language, phonemic awareness, and listening comprehension. The measure is untimed and takes about 10-15 minutes to administer.
