With the electronic book a rapidly growing alternative to the traditional book in reading programs, there is an increasing need for classroom-based tools that support e-book selection for use in literacy instruction. This study continues the technical development of an e-book quality-rating tool (EQRT) for teachers, testing its technical adequacy and usability with primary grade teachers. This investigation focused on (1) the reliability of the EQRT on a sample of e-books rated by primary grade teachers, (2) the types of e-books primary grade level teachers select for use in the classroom, and (3) the quality ratings of e-books by primary grade level teachers. Results indicated strong reliability of the tool when teachers were provided access and instruction and a preference towards informational text e-book titles.
