INTRODUCTION

Benchmark Oral Reading Records provide
 format for initial reading level placement,
 progress monitoring, and analyzing student
 reading behaviors.
BENCHMARK ORAL READING RECORDS
HELP YOU:

  Identify student strengths.
  Select appropriately leveled texts for small
   group instruction.
  Determine specific skills and strategies to focus
   on during reading instruction.
  Assess and monitor student reading across
   many reading levels.
  Provide a standardized way to talk to families
   about student reading progress. (2012 Benchmark Education
  Company)
FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE CODING
BENCHMARK’S ORAL READING LEVEL SCREENER WILL
MAXIMIZE THE TIME SPENT WITH STUDENTS
BEGIN ORAL READING RECORD
After finding a comfortable level of text for
 the student based on accuracy,
 comprehension, and fluency, you may
 introduce the first leveled text from a short
 introduction printed on the Oral Reading
 Record Form.
The text should be new to the student.
 Listen carefully and mark the administrator
 copy of the Oral Reading Record as per
 coding system mentioned earlier or a
 preferred system of coding.
EXAMINER COPY
                 Is the error based on
                  semantic or meaning cues?
                  If so, code the error with an
                  M in the sources of
                  information column under
                  error (E).(saying puppy for
                  dog from a picture clue)
                 Is the error based on
                  syntactic or structural cues?
                  Readers often substitute
                  nouns for nouns or verbs for
                  verbs. Code this with an (S).
                  (saying my pet is a “pony”
                  instead of “dog”)
                 Is the error based or visual
                  cues? Readers use the visual
                  features of print and connect
                  these features to phonetic
                  information that exists in
                  their heads. Code with a (V)
                  .(pilgrim for program)
USE THE QUICK CHECK TO DETERMINE IF THE STUDENT
IS AT AN INDEPENDENT, INSTRUCTIONAL, OR FRUSTRATION
LEVEL
USE THE FORMULAS PROVIDED ON THE READING RECORD TO
DETERMINE THE ERROR RATE, ACCURACY PERCENTAGE, AND SELF-
CORRECTION RATE.

                          Substitutions,
                           omissions,
                           insertions, and
                           teacher telling the
                           word are counted
                           as one error each.
                           Rereading and self
                           -corrected errors
                           are not counted as
                           errors.
.FLUENCY

           In this Benchmark
            assessment,
            fluency is not
            assessed with a
            timed reading. A
            fluency rating
            scale is available
            to determine
            fluency level from
            one to four.
BEHAVIORS AND STRATEGIES USED
WHILE READING ARE ANALYZED.
A benchmark assessment system is a series of
 texts that is used to identify a student's
 current reading level and progress along a
 range of text levels over time.
The word "benchmark" means a standard
 against which to measure something.
Benchmark Oral Reading Records are a
 comprehensive system for identifying
 immediate needs of individual students and
 informing instruction.
