Transcript of QRI Reading Assessment

Reading Assessment Vertical Alignment Before you begin, determine your reason for giving the assessment. The QRI Assessment 1. The 6th grade has gone to Guided Reading levels.
2. Guided Reading levels are different then Lexile
levels and QRI levels.
3. We will continue to learn more about Guided
Reading levels at another time.
4. Most important: You will receive a Guided Reading
Level and all running records given last year. What Does that Mean? 1. We will be offering more professional development
on Guided Reading and how to keep Running Records.
2. We need to keep that in mind as we learn how to
assess using the QRI.
3. You will know exactly where your students left
off at the end of last year, and where to pick up
this year! What is the QRI? Why do we use it? 1. Contains narrative/expository texts at levels
pre-primer to high school
2. Measures comprehension through: retelling, use of look backs, think alouds at higher levels.
3. Also helps you learn the reader's reading behaviors.
4. Provides a number of assessment options including: word identification, fluency, comprehension
5. It can assess listening, oral and silent reading behaviors When Should I use the QRI? 1. When the Running Records do not give you enough information
2. When identifying a reader's reading behaviors
3.When a student is struggling with reading in
content areas
4. Until trained in Running Records, you need a
starting point.
5. Running Records only assess Narrative reading. Materials you need: Student Copies, examiner Copies, pencils, stop watch, audio recorder (optional) Works Cited Leslie, L., & Caldwell, J. S. (2010).
