Running Reading Record

  • April 6, 2011, 10:09 p.m.
A running record form should have a space for recording at least 100 words read aloud. Correct word reading is marked with a check. Any deviation from the text is recorded and analyzed for strategy use. Does the student use meaning, syntax, and visual cues to decode unfamiliar words? If a student reads with 95-100% accuracy, the text is considered an independent level text. 90-94% accuracy indicates a need for scaffolding. Below 90% indicates the text is too difficult.
