Use Reading Level Diagnostics to measure your students’ reading levels (Lexile) at different times during the year, directly through Whooo’s Reading.
First, set your schedule for the reading level assessments. Click the drop-down arrow in the top right, then Settings, then the Reading Level Diagnostics tab. There you can choose dates for your students to take RLD challenges:
On an RLD challenge, students can choose which passages to read for their assessment. Giving students this choice helps them to enjoy the passage and feel in control, which alleviates some of the stress of assessments:
While reading the passage, there are select words that are removed and students must fill in the blanks with the correct options from a word bank:
This cloze assessment is based on research done by MetaMetrics (the company that created Lexile levels) specifically to determine students’ reading levels.
Students will receive coins every time they finish an assessment.
After your students complete several of these cloze assessments (the exact number varies by student), their reading levels will be determined displayed on your Teacher Dashboard:
Students will only know their reading levels if you disclose that information with them.
Once your students' reading levels are determined, you will know if the books they are reading are near their reading level using the Reading Level Graphs on your Data page:
The Reading Level Diagnostics tool is available as an add-on to our Silver or Gold plans. Reach out to learn more!
