    Reading Comprehension Evaluation
    By Debbie

    Hi all,
    You might couple the running record with a retelling. In addition to getting a quantitative score for word accuracy, phrasing / fluency, and analyzing for strategy use (problem solving while reading)from the running record; a retelling will help you know what the child understands about the characters, setting, plot, details, vocabulary and key phrases, plus insights and higher level thinking. The Developmental Reading Assessment by Joetta Beaver is a wonderful tool to use. It is published by Celebration Press, a Pearson Learning Company. ;-D
    Just a note, be sure you're always watching the child's fluency. If the level chosen requires too much problem solving and the solving isn't fast and flexible, the reader will lose meaning. Best of luck.
