Assessment Workshop: What is a running record?

Many of you will have heard us refer to running records and may be wondering just what we're actually talking about!

We use PM Benchmarks here in Hub One; this is a standardised test used throughout the country.  The nature of this test is that all teachers administer it the same way, creating a set of data that is comparable across the hub, school and potentially wider.

It consists of two readings (one to allow the reader to become familiar with the text, and another that's actually assessed for fluency, errors etc.), and an assessment on the learner's re-tell and answers (to both literal and inferential questions).

We've made a little video below to show how this assessment is carried out.  If you have any questions, please do get in touch by leaving a comment below!
