1. Interest and attitude survey

2. Phonemic awareness
Phonological test: Yopp Singer, IAPA
3. Phonics – decoding – San Diego Quick, or Names test
4. Spelling – Required: Use the appropriate Spelling Inventory from Appendix A in the “Words
Their Way” textbook
5. Fluency – You can use one of the passages of the Informal Reading Inventory (IRI) in order to
obtain a fluency score/range
6. Comprehension – Use an IRI with a comprehension rubric (list of questions) to assess
comprehension. This will provide you with a series of miscues to analyze from the running
record portion of the assessment and also information regarding the child’s ability to
comprehend what was just read. If you do not have a formal IRI (see Course Resources for a list
of IRIs), then have the child retell the passage in their own words once they have finished
reading it. (Do not allow them to look at the passage after they have read it once.)
7. Writing – get sample of their own creation or dictate something to them.

VI. Reflection
Reflect on all the assessments you administered. Review your own video-recording of your
assessments. In your paper, reflect on your process for administering the assessments. What
was effective in your process? In what areas do you need to improve? Why? How? What
portion of the analysis was difficult? What resources might you need to help you in this process
next time you administer these types of assessments.

What was effective in my process of assessing Blake was his comprehension and

understanding of instructions. He did not have to be reminded of what he was supposed to do

and was able to follow directions with the first commands. Areas I need to improve on is giving

all details and information before presenting the assessment or assignment. I forgot to tell Blake

that he will be answering a question after he reads the passage “Trip to the Farm”. Although we

had no issue with his comprehension after reading the passage, this could have been a problem

for other students. Also, I did not tell Blake that he was being timed for his reading. Telling him

this information possibly could have had him have a better running record time by him knowing

he was being timed. The portion of the analysis that was difficult was the spelling. It was

difficult figuring out the multiple ways he was struggling in. For future reference, I will need to

become more familiar with these type of assessments by reviewing them and watching videos of

others giving these assessments as a demonstration.
