For example, a reader might say ballet for dance. Ask yourself: Did the meaning of the text influence the error? If so, circle the M in the sources of information column under error (E). …Does it make sense? • Structure: A powerful source of information for a reader is the structure of language. From our knowledge of oral language, we have implicit knowledge of the way words are put together to form phrases and sentences. It “sounds right” to us. Readers often substitute nouns for nouns or verbs for verbs, indicating an awareness of the structure of language. For example, a reader might say We like going for We like to ride. Ask yourself: Does the error fit an acceptable English language structure? Did structure influence the error? If so, circle the S in the sources of information column under error (E). …Does it sound right? • Visual Information: Readers use the visual features of print – the letters and words – to read. They connect these features to phonetic information that exists in their heads. For example, looking at the picture, a reader might say park for play. Ask yourself: Did the visual information from the print influence the error (letter, part, word)? If so, circle V in the error column. …Does it look right? Preparing the Kit • Remove all plastic wrap. • Corrections need to be made to the spiral-bound Benchmark Assessment System 2 Assessment Forms. • Locate 2 white papers & carefully place labels over text: Errata List & Errata Labels Page 76 Under Reading Rate, the last line is missing w/correction.
