Basic Achievement Skills Inventory (BASI)

The Basic Achievement Skills Inventory (BASI) is a versatile, norm-referenced achievement test used to measure math, reading, spelling, and language skills. It was normed during the 2002-2003 school year and serves as a current, valid, and reliable assessment tool. The test was standardized on a sample of more than 4,000 students in grades 3-12 and college matched to the 2000 U.S. Census demographic information.

The BASI consists of 6 timed subtests:
  • Vocabulary (10 minutes)
  • Spelling (10 minutes)
  • Language Mechanics (10 minutes)
  • Reading Comprehension (30 minutes)
  • Math Computation (20 minutes)
  • Math Application (35 minutes)
Each subtest can be administered independently or in any combination. The BASI is organized into 4 grade-specific levels:
  • Level 1 for grades 3-4
  • Level 2 for grades 5-6
  • Level 3 for grades 7-8
  • Level 4 for grades 9-12
