Assess with Printable Running Records

  • Sit one-on-one with each student to observe qualitative reading behavior.
  • Score a printed running record as a student reads aloud for quantitative measures.

Find students' instructional levels by assessing their reading skills with developmentally appropriate texts while recording reading behavior. Benchmark Passages are short text selections that are one part of a three-part process to help place students at their instructional levels for leveled reading sessions and to assess their readiness to progress to the next level.
