How to complete the Running Record Recording Sheet.

Although you can use a blank piece of paper to administer a running record, it is helpful to use a blank Running Record Recording Sheet to help with organization.

1. Fill in the basic information on the top of the form . Include the number of running words, the level of the text and whether the book is seen (familiar) or un seen (unfamiliar).

2. After administering the running record, use a scrap piece of paper or a calculator to determine the accuracy and self-correction ratios. Write the ratios on the front of the recording sheet .

A student should self-correct after monitoring, noting a discrepancy, and searching for and using additional information to correct the problem . Self-correction is noted in the form of a

self-correction ratio. The goal is for the student to self-correct at least 1 error in every 4 errors (1:4).

3.Under Cues Used summarize the cues or sources of information the student used. Look for patterns in the MSV analysis of errors and self-corrections. Use a checkmark to indicate that the source of information was used regularly.

4.Fill in the Making Inst ruct ional Decisions/ Teaching for St rat egies sheet . Record whether or not the student used the various sources of information on a regular basis.

Record other observations such as:

¥Used MS together

¥Neglected V

¥Used V at self-correction

¥Used sounding at difficult y

¥Used all 3 together

5.Under Strategies Used consider the student Õs observed reading behaviours, place a checkmark beside the strategy or strategies used by the student, then add summary comments to the Making Inst ruct ional Decisions/ Teaching for St rat egies sheet .

M onitoring : Monitoring ensures that the reading makes sense semantically, syntactically and visually (makes sense, sounds right and looks right). Proficient readers stop and check the reading only if the three sources of information do not match.Young readers need to learn how to monitor reading for accuracy.

Sample monitoring summary comments:

¥Paused at errors (the student knew something was wrong but did not yet know what to do about it)

¥Repeated phrases after error (the student knew something was wrong and tried to obtain additional information)

¥Appealed for confirmation after error

Cross-Checking: Cross-checking is a subset of monitoring. Many early readers use cross- checking. The student uses one or two sources of information, then cross-checks the word by using another (the neglected) source of information. For example: the student reads ran instead of w alked. The student appears to have used meaning and structure but not visual information. If the student cross-checks, the attempt is checked using visual infor- mation. The student should note that ran does not visually match w alked.

Sample cross-checking comments:

¥Used V to check MS

¥Used MS to check V

Searching: Searching is a strategy used by the student to search for (and use) information to solve a word. The student may use meaning, structure or visual information, or a combi- nation of the three sources of information.

Sample searching comments:

¥Used picture

¥Used initial sound

¥Covered ending

¥Found chunks

¥Read on

6.Write a brief comment on the Making Inst ruct ional Decisions/ Teaching for St rat egies sheet about required teaching focus based on the information obtained from the running record. What does the student do well? What needs to be taught next? This teaching focus can then be incorporated into individual, group or whole class instruction.
