Running Records
Are tools for assessing reading
 Are used when students read aloud.
 Are able to be analyzed for meaning,
language structure, and visual (phonic)
Uses of Running Records
To place children in appropriate texts.
 To note reading behaviors the child
knows and what (s)he needs to learn
 To keep a record of change over time.
 To make critical decisions about a child.
Interpreting Running Records
Does the child read from left to right, top
to bottom, and return sweep?
 Does the child use background
 Does the child self-correct?
 Does the child use language structure?
 Does the child search for meaning?
 Does the child take risks?
The Three Reading Cue Systems
Does it make sense?
Does it sound right?
Does it look right?
Taking a Running Record
Sit next to the child while he reads the
Code the behaviors on a separate form
or blank piece of paper.
Tell him the word if he is stuck on a word.
Coding a Running Record
Make a check mark for each word read
 Record mismatches with a line; write
children’s behaviors above the line and
text information below the line.
 Examine the Conventions sheet for
Scoring Running Records
Substitutions count as one error.
 Multiple attempts at a word count as one
 Omissions, insertions, and “tolds” count
as one error. Repetitions are not errors.
 Self-corrections are not errors.
Accuracy and Self-Correction Rates
Subtract the number of errors from total words.
Divide by the number of words and multiply by
100 to get the accuracy rate.
For self-correction rate, add the number of
errors and self-corrections and divide by the
number of self-corrections.
Reading Levels
95-99% easy text - independent level
90-94% instructional text and level
Below 90% - difficult text and level
Analyze the cues to determine the
strategies the reader used and what must
be taught next.
 Questions to ask:
Does the reader use cues in relation to one
Does the reader search for more information
to self-correct?
The next step is to practice taking a running
Be sure to notice what the child is doing during
