Kindergarten Assessments - EMail from Dona Lerew Oct 1, 2007
There have been a number of concerns about the kindergarten assessments listed on the grading guidelines for PowerGrade. Please see the points listed below to help you with your data collection:

1. Remember the note on the grading guidelines: “Required assignments should be included in your grade book as needed according to the content of that trimester. At some point throughout the year, each required assignment must be included.” Use the kindergarten assessments when you are ready for them. For example, the phonemic awareness interview probably should not be given until into the second trimester. Your K-POP scores from the pretest in sound symbol relationship will give you a good indication at this point in time as to which students have some understanding and which don’t. Wait to use the interview until you feel most students should have some awareness and understanding.

2. Once a student tests proficient on a kindergarten assessment, there is not need to continue to test that student. For example, if a student knows all the letters of the alphabet, you do not need to keep testing that student when you test the other students who have not yet shown proficiency.

3. When you repeat an assessment for those students who have not yet shown proficiency, such as the letters of the alphabet, you can exempt the students who have shown proficiency on your PowerGrade set up. When you enter the scores, just click on the “Exempt Score” box in the Score Inspector for those students. They will have “ex” listed for their score and it will not count against them for their final grade.

I hope this helps you as you continue to think through when to use the kindergarten assessments and how to record the scores. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Running Record - 2 "Special Cases" from the F & P Assessment Guide, p. 24
-If the child inserts many words, you could have more errors than the running words on a page. This is likely to happen only at the lower levels. In this case, score the page as having the same number of errors as words on the page.
-Occasionally, especially at the lower levels, a child will begin to "invent" text, that is, tell the story by making up his own language, disregarding the print. If this happens, write "inventing" at the top of the sheet and stop the assessment. In this case, the text is below the accuracy criterion, or a hard text.

1. It became apparent during the inservice that classroom teachers as well as reading specialists feel it would be best to complete the testing in a collaborative manner with both classroom teachers and reading specialists testing students. With the emphasis on in-class reading support and co-teaching, this request does make sense. So, please work together to complete the testing.
2. During the inservice, there was discussion about when a student does not perform adequately on the word recognition part of the test but may be able to answer some comprehension questions because of picture clues and compensation strategies. Please follow the procedures below for this.
   * If a child scores below the acceptable accuracy rate for that level, you must record the lowest score into PowerGrade, that is, 64% for second grade and 74% for kindergarten for all three scores (running record, comprehension, and fluency). We must follow the guidelines of the assessment system that state if the child reads below the acceptable accuracy rate, he/she is not reading on that level.
   * Stop the child reading aloud when the accuracy rate falls below the indicated level.
   * You may ask the child to continue to read silently and then ask the comprehension questions, for your own information and to inform the parents of the what the child is able to do. It should be noted that the child’s comprehension is based on picture clues, not text. However, we cannot count this on PowerGrade as an acceptable comprehension score. As text becomes more difficult, the child will fall behind in comprehension and we do not want the parent to think that the child’s comprehension skills are acceptable. However, it is important for the parent to be informed about what reading skills and strategies the child is able to use at this point in his/her reading development.

Phonemic Awareness Rubric Grade 1
3 Minute Assessment - Word Recognition Accuracy (Decoding)

Sept 24, 2007 EMail from Dona Lerew
When using the 3 Minute Assessment rubric for Reading Fluency – Expression, you can calculate a total score by combining the scores for the four components of Expression and Volume, Phrasing and Intonation, Smoothness, and Pace. The rubric is in the Report Card Manual and has a spot for the total score. The highest possible total score would be 16, 4 for each component.

To calculate what rubric score to put into Power Teacher
for the total score, do the following:
1. Add up all the scores for the components to get the total score
2. Divide the total score by 4 to get the average
3. Round this number to the nearest ones
4. Use that number to enter the corresponding rubric score from the rubric conversion chart (4=98, 3=87, 2=76, 1=64)

You can certainly record the individual rubric scores for each component instead of calculating a total score. It is up to you and what you are assessing at the time.
