I assign a running record to each student in my class and once finished the students' recordings are sent to my "In Basket" where I can access them anywhere at anytime! I choose to listen to their recordings at home in a quiet environment and make the necessary notations about their reading on the running record scoring sheet. I am able to listen to each recording as many times as I need to in order to mark errors accurately.
Notice the "scorecard" on the right hand side has all the information about the student's reading. You can easily mark errors utilizing their great and very simple format! All recordings and benchmark assessments are saved under the child's name. It's a wonderful way to share accuracy and fluency growth with the child and their family! Not to mention you do not have a paper trail to contend with!! It is all located in the teacher portion of the RAZ-KIDS APP!
By utilizing this app I have saved valuable instructional time. The data that I collect daily is used to help drive my instruction for each student. I can easily identify their independent comprehension strengths as well as their weaknesses. Here is a sample of a report I am able to collect daily on each child's individual independent reading abilities. You can see which skills he has encountered and where his strengths are and where he needs support.
Here is a report that shares their reading level progress. This one is from the past 90 days. Again, what a great way to share information with the student and parents!
From the data I am able to collect at the touch of a button I can create my strategy groups and my RTI intervention needs!!
RAZ-KIDS definitely is a gold mine when it come to data collection!! It is well worth your time and effort to get to know this app and use it with your students!
You too may be RAZZLE - DAZZLED!!!
