Running Record Guidelines

System for Monitoring Running Records (North Elementary)


It is an expectation for North Elementary that running records will be a valued tool used in kindergarten through third grade. Teachers, interventionists, and administrators will work together to analyze running records, monitor effective usage, and make instructional decisions.


Non-negotiables:


  • Running records will be dated, analyzed with MSV, and have a teach point

  • Guided reading instruction will not stop for a running record “day”. Running records are integrated into guided reading groups or at other times as it fits in class schedule.

  • Use Fountas & Pinnell fluency scale of 1,2,3,4 (access on Google Docs) beginning at level 4. On levels A-3 note self-monitoring and use of strategies. Time about every 3rd running record.

  • Teachers will create and use individual Appendix H forms from Fountas and Pinnell (access on Google Docs) for each student

  • Running records will be on once read books NOT cold reads.


Timeline: (these are minimum requirements)


Kindergarten will complete a running record for each student based upon this schedule

  • 1st 9 weeks- No running records required, but they can be completed at teacher discretion

  • 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 9 weeks-

    • students reading above level 1 time per 9 weeks

    • students reading on level 2 times per 9 weeks

    • students reading below 3 times per 9 weeks


First and Second grade will complete a running record for each student based upon this schedule

  • students reading above level 1 time per 9 weeks

  • students reading on level 2 times per 9 weeks

  • students reading below level 3 times per 9 weeks


Third Grade will complete a running record for each student during the Fall semester based upon this schedule. DRA is not considered a running record.

  • 28 and above: 1 running record each 9 weeks

  • 24-20: 2 running records each 9 weeks

  • 18 and below: 3 running records each 9 weeks

Third Grade will complete a running record for each student during the Spring semester based upon this schedule

  • 30 and above: 1 running record each 9 weeks

  • 28-24: 2 running records each 9 weeks

  • 20 and below: 3 running records each 9 weeks


*Progress monitoring is not to be confused with tier 1 classroom instruction.



Monitoring:

  • Teachers will keep a data binder/running record binder with a tab for each student. This is where your appendix H will be kept along with your ongoing running records. See Janice McAntyre if you would like to see a fabulous example.

  • Brandie Linville will touch base as needed to see your data binder for ESL students.

  • On one running record per period check accuracy, fluency, and comprehension.

  • Reading interventionists will meet informally to collaborate with teachers on the usage of running records

  • Based upon running records and student reading levels, reading interventionists will create a list of students to monitor closely during “official” running record meetings.

  • Running records will be discussed as needed during RtI meetings. Please bring your data binder with you.


Responsibilities:

  • Teachers will complete running records based on established guidelines.

  • Reading interventionists will be available to collaborate with teachers and provide support.

  • Administrators will provide resources.

  • All parties involved will collaborate to make instructional decisions with a focus on student learning

Appendix H Reminders

  • Record all running records on appendix H
  • Include: date, title, level, percent accuracy for each running record charted
  • Highlight or otherwise indicate middle of the year DRA goal on each student's appendix H
  • In you data binder have a numbered tab for each student. Appendix H and all running records for each student should be placed behind their numbered tab.
  • All students should have had at least one running record in addition to DRA.
