I recently subbed in a classroom where the teacher assessed each student's fluency once a week. I failed to ask any details but this is what I observed as I helped with a few. Each student had an individual folder that had a graph that looked like it was probably from a book. At the top it had the students reading goal then on the left side numbers from 0-100 (for how many words rhey read in one minute). The bottom had the date of the assessment, what story was tested and how many words were read correctly. Administration: the teacher gives the student a small passage to read(which is taken from their weekly story andcis from a premade worksheet) everyone reads the same passage. They are timed for one minute, at the end the teacher graphs (bar) in what they read in their folder then the student takes home the worksheet passage. You can easily see the students progress from week to week. Questions: wherever I end up teaching I don't know that I will have these worksheet passages to test on. I thought about using the text from their guided reading but I don't feel this would be accurate assessment as most children will be reading different texts at different levels. Also if I were to do the guided reading books how would I choose a page to test on because page 3 may easy to read for one student but hard for another. How do you choose a fair page? If any of you do something similar to this what is the most fair way, what is your process and how do you choose the text? Thanks!
