Generic Reading Assessment

Try this generic reading assessment in between DART assessments (link below). Or use at any time with reading material that you choose. Articles within our Nelson Literacy texts are easy to find and use with this open-ended assessment.  You may even want to use articles from Nelson Literacy’s large guided reading box as they have above, at and below grade level options for a variety of curricular topics.

Another option is the Reaching Readers kits available for grades 3 to 6 at the LRC.  These may be found by doing a title seach in Meriwether.  Each kit has colourful, magazine-style articles, along with comprehension questions, an oral conference sheet, and oral questions. And best of all, there are copies of text at grade level, beyond and below in each kit to meet the diversity within your class.
