  12. 12. Running Records Research shows that implementation of running records improves student achievement in both reading and writing.
  13. 13. The Running Record is a method of recording a student’s reading behavior. It provides the teacher with information that can be analyzed to determine the strengths and needs of an individual student. A Running Record can be taken at any time on any reading material. What Are Running Records?
  14. 14. Choosing the Right Book What level is the book at? Independent • 95-100% accuracy • Independent/ Self- Sustained Reading Instructional • 90-94% accuracy • Guided Reading Hard • 89% and less • Frustration level Select a text that will challenge the reader a little, but will allow them to be successful with the instructional scaffolds you provide them. Running Records may be done on text that is seen or unseen, depending on their level of reading development.
  15. 15. Does it look right? Does it sound right? Does it make sense? Proficient readers use all three cueing systems simultaneously and efficiently. When children have trouble comprehending, they are not attending to one of the cueing systems.
  16. 16. Does the error look like the word?
  17. 17. The meaning or general context of the story/sentence is reflected in the substitution.
  18. 18. Analysis of the text should only take into account the text up to and including the error: Sentence: I like to see horses at the farm. Error: I like to fly horses at the farm. Only read through the error: I like to fly.
  19. 19. It’s important for teachers to conference with a child immediately after taking a running record. The conference should include what the child has done successfully and one or two teaching points. Immediately after a running record
  20. 20. After the Running Record – ask yourself… What is the child’s strength? What cues and strategies are missing from his/her repertoire? What part/parts of this running record could you go back and use as a reinforcement of strategy use? Is this selection of text appropriate for this child? What level would you use for tomorrow’s lesson?
  21. 21. Retrospective Miscue Analysis  See handout  Student was ultimately responsible for defining the strategy he/she used and the fact that the student was an active participant in the dialog, not someone that was being “told” what to do and/or talked “at”.
