Continuous gathering of assessment and using multiple methods of meaningful, authentic tasks in real reading situations tracks students’ learning over time and is essential in developing a comprehensive picture of student learning. The purpose of the assessments determines whether it will be used in a formative or summative way.
The following are examples of assessment tools:
- co-constructed criteria ie. anchor charts;
- interviews to probe student thinking;
- student goal setting;
- running record;
- video of reading moments, audio recordings;
- direct observation;
- anecdotal records;
- levelled benchmark assessment (Fountas & Pinnell, DRA, Reading Recovery, PM Benchmarks, Northern Lights SD, Regina Public ORR);
- work samples ie. retellings;
- exemplars; and
- Common Framework of Reference (CFR) for EAL Learners.
