Well the S.R.I test stands for Student Reading Inventory. This test tells you what class you're going to be in. If score high on the S.R.I test like an 1056, you're an 9.0 student like me.

Here are the best tips and tricks:

*Don't give up on yourself or the test. Also don't pressure yourself.
*When you make a mistake try to figure it out. DON'T get confused.
*Use the hamburger method to solve complicated S.R.I problems.
*Don't sit by your friends so you won't get distracted.
*Do brain gyms before the S.R.I test.
*Believe in yourself. Stay focus.
*Use the Answer Checking Strategies.
*Also use Problem Solving Strategies to figure out the problem.
