Use Reading Level Diagnostics to measure your students’ reading levels at different times during the year, directly through Whooo’s Reading.
Here's how it works:
First, set your schedule for the assessments under Settings > Reading Level Diagnostics:
Your students choose which passages to read for their assessment. Assessments can be frustrating for students; giving them this choice helps them to enjoy the passage and feel in control.
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 and the data will be available on your Dashboard:
You will then know if the books they are reading are at their reading level using the Reading Graphs:
Whooo’s Reading is able to report reading levels in a variety of systems, including Lexile, Fountas & Pinnell, DRA, and Rigby.
The Cost of Reading Level Diagnostics: $3 per student if purchased with a Whooo’s Reading School license. Alternatively, Reading Level Diagnostics can be purchased as an add-on to your free Whooo’s Reading Class account for $5 per student.
