NOVA RED 0590 Case Study

  1. 1. RED 0590 Nova University 2015 Dr. Melinda Prague Chat 2 (Case Studies)
  2. 2. For this assignment, think of yourself as the reading coach at your school. Part 1: You will be administering 4 assessments to four children. You will be demonstrating that you know how to administer the test and interpret the results. You will train the teachers at your school to administer and interpret the test.
  3. 3. Criteria: One of the four students must be a special needs child One of the four students must be an English Language Learner
  4. 4. Part 1 - Assessments Assessments: Administer Concept About Print Test - administer to a child between the ages of 4 and 6 Administer the Oral Language Checklist to an elementary child Administer Multidimensional Fluency Scale - any age Administer the Reader Self Perception Scale to a middle or high school student
  5. 5. Concepts About Print was designed by Marie Clay Assesses print knowledge - letter, word, sentence story, directionality, text vs. picture, and punctuation. Marie Clay’s four booklets may be used as pre tests or post tests, but the same information may be assessed without those booklets.
  6. 6. This video clip includes examples of informal phonological/phonemic awareness assessments. This video clip includes examples of concepts of print and letter recognition assessments.

  8. 8. The Oral Language checklist is an anecdotal record. Use the checklist provided in the text (page 83). While this appears to be one of the simplest of the assessments, it is difficult if you are not currently in a classroom.
  9. 9. By having students read one or two grade-level passages for one minute each, teachers can get a quick sense of their students' level of decoding accuracy, automaticity, and prosodic reading. Rasinski's Multidimensional Fluency Scale is an example of a quick assessment that may not be definitive, but does provide teachers and school administrators with a method for screening new students, tracking students' ongoing progress in the various dimensions of reading fluency, and identifying the students who may require additional assessment and instruction.
  10. 10. Reader Self Perception Scale
  11. 11. As the reading coach, how will you assist classroom teachers in using the assessment data you gathered to plan instruction? What curriculum materials will you suggest that match the reading levels, interests, and cultural and linguistic background of students, and how will you assist the teachers in selecting the most appropriate strategies that best meet the needs of the student. All strategies must be researched based.
  12. 12. In a written report, clearly outline and interpret the results of the tests, help teachers select appropriate options, and explain the evidence base for selecting the practices to best meet the needs of all students. Communicate the assessment information to various audiences for instructional purposes. (ie. power point, video, etc.) Share your results and recommendations with other classroom teachers, reading specialists, reading coaches, literacy coaches, parents, and the teachers of the children who were used in the case studies.
