While working with the Double Dose Program for struggling readers at her school, Carol S. Fitzpatrick was unable to find a simple phonics assessment that could be given to the whole class at once. She needed one that would assess her students ability from a the very beginning phonics skill of identifying what sound (phoneme) is represented by an alphabet letter (grapheme) up to and including the level where students are decoding long, multisyllabic words. She couldn't find one, so she wrote one. It is now being used in schools all over the world.

The Informal Decoding Inventory for Alphabetic Principles (IDI) is found in the last 57 pages of her book "Help, I Can't Read!" It includes everything teachers need to assess and diagnose where all students are functioning with decoding ability. Once teachers gives the 5 simple tests, the scores are recorded on a tracking sheet for each student that teachers can use to design differentiated instruction for the class. The IDI also has a Progress-Monitoring Tool for phonics that corresponds to the skill categories on the IDI.
