1 Reading Assessment: GORT- 4 (Gray Oral Reading Test -4) By: Susan Zirpoli3/24/11For the great teachers atSouth Carroll High SchoolAdd WIST to list.QRI.fab 5 – Monday to put on notice and discuss further at Feb. 2nd meeting.
2 WHAT IS YOUR QUESTION? Why are you assessing? What component of Reading are you assessing?Remember: Tests do not diagnose- people do.+ IT TAKES A TEAMUse multiple assessments to diagnose.Don’t forget classroom performance, screening, IRIs, running records, classroom observation, other?Work on this slide a lotDyslexic/Reading Disability Profile Remember: We do not diagnose dyslexia-FIND A QUOTE THAT SUPPORTS THISMore time for instruction, less time for testing.
3 Phonemic Awareness Phonics Fluency Vocabulary Comprehension Reading Assessment Handout: Special Education Matrix Organized by the Big 5Phonemic AwarenessPhonicsFluencyVocabularyComprehensionNational Reading Panel (2000)Give handout to participants. This is also available on the spec. ed. wiki- coming.
5 GORT 4: Test Administration 1:1Grades 1-12Time: minutesCeilings: 2 separate1 for fluency - Timer needed.1 for comprehensionEasy to give. Tricky to score due to 2 ceilings.Bring a couple of timers
6 WHY: GORT- 4 Norm-referenced, reliable and valid test of Oral Reading RATEACCURACYFLUENCY (Rate + Accuracy)COMPREHENSIONOVERALL READING ABILITY(Combination of student’s Fluency & Comprehension Scores)
7 PURPOSE ID students with Problems – pg. 4 Determine Strengths & Weaknesses – pg. 4Document Progress – pg. 52 equivalent forms availableResearch
8 ADMINISTRATIONPractice Essential - (test your child, the neighbor, the dog- get comfortable before testing students)READ THE MANUAL (place post-its to parts you need to access quickly)Validity/Reliability based on standard administration- don’t deviate from the script.
9 MATERIALS NEEDED Timer Tape Recorder (highly recommended- especially for analysis of miscues)ManualStudent Book (contains stories that the student reads)Profile/Examiner Record Booklet
10 THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT A STANDARDIZED TEST. TEACHER DIRECTIONS pg.15Place post-its in technical manual.This is especially important where verbatim teacher directions are given.THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT A STANDARDIZED TEST.
11 General ScoringTime- indicate time in seconds at the end of each passage.Deviation from Print- the # of errors or miscues. These include:SubstitutionsAdditionsOmissionsComprehension Score-# correctConverting Time & Deviations from Print to Rate and Accuracy
12 MARKING DEVIATIONS FROM PRINT pg. 17 READ THIS PAGE CAREFULLYWhat counts as an error:SubstitutionsAdditionsOmissions
13 MARKING MISCUES See page 17- slashes More in-depth analysis – pg. 19 MISCUE MARKING SYSTEM
14 PRACTICE Administration Let’s use Story 5 from Form AMark errors with slashes while I read.Don’t forget timer and tape recorderPractice Scoring:Rate, Accuracy, Fluency and Comprehension.Handout Story 5 from protocol book – Blue Jay StoryI read-Someone times- set timer.Use tape recorderThey will use slashes to mark errorsCheck
15 This is optional but assists with instructional recommendations. Miscue AnalysisStory 5 & 6 exemplarsNote miscue marking system while I read stories.Now look at Sample 2 Form –Miscue Analysis WorksheetThis is optional but assists with instructional recommendations.I’ll read and you can see how we mark the miscues.Now look at the Sample 2 Form B.
16 Miscue Analysis informs instruction Meaning SimilarityFunction SimilarityGraphic/Phonemic SimilarityMultiple SourcesSelf- Correction(Guidelines for scoring -
17 BASALS & CEILINGS pg. 11-15 NOTE: THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!! 2 separate Basals & Ceilings:ComprehensionFluency
18 COMPREHENSION– pg. 11 (Basals & Ceilings) Establish ceiling first. Then go back to establish basal.Basal – answers all 5 comprehension questions correctly.Ceiling - misses 3 out of 5 comprehension questions or until the last story is read.
19 FLUENCY– pg. 13 (Basals & Ceilings) pg. Basal –When the fluency score for a story is 9 or 10Ceiling –When the fluency score for a story is 2 or less.Remember: Fluency is derived by adding Rate + Accuracy
20 PRACTICE SCORING Student: Fancy Free Compute Age Where is basal/ceiling fluency?Where is basal/ceiling comprehension?Compute Raw ScoresStandard Scores, Percentile RanksSum of Fluency and Comprehension SS%ileOral Reading Quotient (ORC)Do self, then with partner, share with group.
21 HOW DID FANCY DO? Standard Scores – subtests/total? %ile Ranks What does this mean?Strengths/Weaknesses?
