I am on my own in creating a guided reading program, no one at my school does this. The only assessment tool I have is the STAR test (related to AR) in the computer lab. No DRA, Fountas and Pinnell, etc
Anyone happen to know how to correlate AR level to FP, Lexile or Reading A-Z? For instance, if I decide to spend the $80 on ReadingA-Z, I would have to give the STAR test and then try to figure out which benchmark test to give them. I guess take the Independent reading level and add .2?? I HATE guessing!! Maybe if there is no correlation chart you could give me your impression of how the STAR test results seemed to compare? I noticed book levels seem to vary greatly between AR and the other systems..
Thanks for any help you can give me.
