Sri Training Module Do Dea

  1. 1. Scholastic Reading Inventory-Interactive Training Module
  2. 2. <ul><li>What is the SRI Interactive ? </li></ul><ul><li>Interactive reading comprehension test </li></ul><ul><li>An assessment of student reading levels </li></ul><ul><li>Scores are reported in Lexiles </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Who should take the SRI ? </li></ul><ul><li>The SRI is designed for students who can read. </li></ul><ul><li>It is recommended that teachers take an SRI BEFORE students. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>If students are unable to read, should the SRI be read to them? </li></ul><ul><li>The SRI is for students who are readers. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>REFLECT </li></ul><ul><li>Why is it important for you as a teacher to take this test? </li></ul><ul><li>What environmental conditions should exist for students during this test? </li></ul>
  6. 6. How does the SRI - Interactive work?
  7. 7. 1. Student logs onto computer. 2. Student answers questions about his/her reading interests to prepare a customized reading list.
  8. 8. Student selects favorite types of books.
  9. 9. Book Interest Screens Grades K-2 Grades 3-5 Grades 6+
  10. 10. <ul><li>Student takes a short Practice Test. </li></ul><ul><li>4. The test begins. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Students take the practice test.
  12. 12. Practice Test Optional Practice Test <ul><li>To make sure </li></ul><ul><li>student understands </li></ul><ul><li>directions. </li></ul><ul><li>To make sure </li></ul><ul><li>student knows how </li></ul><ul><li>to use computer. </li></ul><ul><li>Approximately three to </li></ul><ul><li>five questions in </li></ul><ul><li>length. </li></ul>Directions can be read aloud by the computer.
  13. 13. Student takes the SRI-Interactive test.
  14. 14. Compute-Adaptive Technology
  15. 15. Assess Reading Levels through Graduate School
  16. 16. <ul><li>The test ends when a student has </li></ul><ul><li>answered enough questions to accurately </li></ul><ul><li>calculate a Lexile measure. </li></ul><ul><li>Student receives a </li></ul><ul><li>Recommended Reading List. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Why does SRI work? </li></ul><ul><li>Authentic text passages </li></ul><ul><li>Fiction, non-fiction, high interest low readability passages </li></ul><ul><li>Require students to use inference, draw conclusions, demonstrate knowledge of content vocabulary, and higher order thinking skills </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Why does SRI work? </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Adaptive Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Test adapts to student responses. Test automatically steps up or down according to performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Adaptive technology only requires student to do as many questions as needed to calculate accurate Lexile. </li></ul><ul><li>Test bank of 3000 questions ensures that no two tests are identical. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Why does SRI work? </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible </li></ul><ul><li>Test can be administered at any computer station or on a number of computers. </li></ul><ul><li>Appropriate for all students who are reading. </li></ul><ul><li>Settings are easily adjusted to accommodate specific student needs. </li></ul>
  20. 20. What is a Lexile? A Lexile is a unit for measuring text difficulty. The word Lexile is a blend of the root word “Lex”, which refers to words, and echoes the word “ percentile”, a comparative unit of measure.
  21. 21. Test takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes To complete.
  22. 22. How do you use a Lexile Measure? On Grade Level Lexile Range Student Tested Lexile: 729L Grade 7 Grade 6 Grade 5 Grade 4 850-1100L 800-1050L 700-1000L 600-900L Instructional/Challenging Reading Range is 250L Above Lexile Score. Less than 70% Comprehension Independent/Instructional Reading Range is 100L Below to 50L Above Lexile. 70% to 80% Comprehension Independent/Fluent Reading Range is 250L below Lexile Score. 80% to 90% Comprehension
  23. 23. Recommended Reading List <ul><li>Selected Interest areas based </li></ul><ul><li>on initial selection </li></ul><ul><li>Measured Reading Level </li></ul><ul><li>reported in Lexiles </li></ul><ul><li>Grade Level – </li></ul><ul><li>Developmentally appropriate </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>REFLECT </li></ul><ul><li>How often should the SRI be given? </li></ul><ul><li>What possible exceptions might exist? </li></ul>
