Read Naturally Live: Conducting a one-minute timing

(5444 Views)

To conduct a one-minute timing in Read Naturally Live stories:

  1. Sit next to the student so that you can both see the story on the screen.
  2. Click either Conduct Cold Timing (for a cold timing, if students are required to have an adult present) or Conduct Pass Activities (for a hot timing).
  3. Log in by entering your user ID and password and clicking Log In. For security purposes, never share your user ID and password with students.
  4. Tell the student to click Start Timing when he or she is ready to begin reading.
  5. As the student reads, count his or her errors:  For a cold timing, have the student click on words he or she missed. For the hot timing, count the words the student missed.
  6. If the bell sounds, tell the student to stop reading and to click on the last word read. If the student finishes before the bell sounds, tell the student to click Finished.
  7. For a hot timing, enter the number of words the student missed and an expression score; click the icon next to the expression box to see the rating scale.
  8. Click Next.

Counting errors

During timings, follow these guidelines for counting errors:

  • If the student says an incorrect word, do not say the correct word unless the student stops and is unable to continue.
  • Wait three seconds before supplying a word to a student stopped on a word.

Count the following as errors:

  • Mispronunciations and dropped endings
  • Words out of sequence or transpositions (count each word read out of order as an error)
  • Omissions
  • Words supplied by the adult conducting the timing
  • Substitutions with synonyms
  • Repeated errors (including proper nouns) are counted each time

Do not count the following as errors:

  • Mispronunciations due to dialect or speech problems
  • Insertions (or repeating a word read correctly)
  • Self-corrections

 

Read Naturally Live: Completing the Pass step

(2647 Views)

In the Pass step, a teacher, another staff member, or a Read Live assistant checks to see if students have met the pass requirements for the story. To pass, students must:

  • Reach their reading-rate goals when reading the story.
  • Make three or fewer errors when reading the story.
  • Read the story with expression.
  • Answer the quiz questions correctly.
  • Meet expectations for retelling the story or, for students in the Phonics series, read the word lists down and across within the specified time and with three or fewer errors.

Step 1: Conduct a hot timing.

  1. On the Pass/More Practice or Pass/Wordtastic page, click Conduct Pass Activities.
  2. Log in by entering your user ID and password and clicking Log In. For security purposes, never share your user ID and password with students.
  3. On the Pass/Hot Timing step, ask the student to click Start Timing.
  4. As the student reads, listen and count the number of errors.
  5. Either:
    • If the bell sounds, click the last word read when the timer expired.
    • If the student finishes the story before the bell sounds, click Finished.
  6. Enter the number of words the student missed.
  7. Rate the student's expression. The expression score indicates how well the student used expression while reading the story. The student must receive an expression score of 2 or higher to pass the story. Ratings range from 1 to 4. In the software, click the icon next to the expression box to see the rating scale.
  8. Click Next to continue.
  9. On the Pass/Hot Timing Graph step, view the student's cold- and hot-timing results.
  10. Click Next to continue.

Step 2: Correct the quiz.

  1. On the Pass/Grade Quiz step, review the student's answer(s) to the open-ended question(s).
  2. Click See correct answer to view a suggested answer for the question displayed.
  3. Indicate whether each answer is correct (click Yes) or incorrect (click No).
  4. Click Next to continue.

Step 3: Correct the retelling or conduct the Phonics word list pass timing.

Students working in series other than Phonics retell each story.

  1. On the Pass/Grade Retell step, review the student's work. Your requirements for the Retell step will vary based on the student's age and ability. For example, you may require older or more advanced students to write a summary with a main idea and supporting details.
  2. Indicate whether the student's retelling met your expectations (click Yes) or not (click No).
  3. Click Next to continue.

Students working in the Phonics series complete a word list pass timing.

  1. On the Pass/Word List step, ask the student to click Start Timing.
  2. As the student reads the words, listen and count the number of errors.
  3. When the student finishes reading the words down the columns, the student clicks Finished.
  4. When the student finishes reading the words across the rows, the student clicks Finished again.
  5. Enter the number of words the student missed.
  6. Click Next to continue.

Step 4: Review student work.

  1. On the Pass/Review Work Story Details page, look under the Pass heading to see the student's pass results. Next to each item, a star or X appears. A star indicates the student met the requirement. An X indicates the student has not met that requirement.
  2. To review the details for a particular step, scroll to the detailed results for that step.
  3. Click Fluency Graph, Comprehension Graph, and Retell Graph or Word List Graph to see the student's scores graphed for all completed stories in the level.
  4. Click Next to continue.

 

Read Naturally Live: Options for students who do not pass

(2385 Views)

If a student does not successfully complete one or more of the criteria for passing, after reviewing the student's work, you will be taken to the Pass/Remedial Actions page to decide the best course of action.

  1. On the Pass/Remedial Actions step, view the student's pass results for each pass requirement. Remedial actions are also listed for each requirement.
  2. Select a remedial action for each pass requirement that has not been met.
    • If a student failed to meet the goal rate because he or she was reading too slowly, select Practice Story. The student will practice the story until reaching his or her goal and then complete another hot timing.
    • If a student made many errors during the hot timing because he or she was unable to sound out words or read sight words, remind the student that he or she must read accurately to pass, and select the option to Read along for accuracy. The student will read along with the narration at the slowest pace, focusing on accuracy, and then complete another hot timing.
    • If you gave the student a low expression score, remind the student to read like he or she talks, and select the option to Read along for expression. The student will read along with the narration at the fastest pace, focusing on expression, and then complete another hot timing.
    • If the student answered any questions incorrectly, select Redo missed questions. The student will redo any incorrect answers.
    • If the student failed to pass the word list, select Practice word list. The student will practice the word list until reaching his or her goal and then complete another word list pass timing.
    • If the student's retelling of the story did not meet your expectations, select Rework the Retell step. The student will revise his or her work on this step.
    • If the student missed passing the hot timing only by a small margin, you can immediately conduct another hot timing with the student. Select Retest story without selecting any other remedial actions.
    • If the student missed passing the word list by only a small margin, you can immediately conduct another word list pass timing with the student. Select Retest word list without selecting any other remedial actions.
    • If you want to pass the student with the current scores even though not all the requirements have been met, select Pass with current scores. If you select pass with current scores, the student will not be asked to do any remedial work. Since students strive to do better work when they know they're consistently held to the pass requirements, use pass with current scores infrequently.
  3. Click Next to continue. The student will be required to complete any remedial actions selected. If you select multiple remedial actions, the software will prompt the student to complete the steps in order.
