Included in this Resource:
A printable PDF file
9 leveled passages – one for each RI standard (all within the 700-1,100 Lexile range)
9 pre + post tests with leveled questions – one per Common Core standard
9 answer keys with a breakdown of why each question is included
How the Assessments are Designed:
The texts and assessments are designed so that there is a set for each standard. There are a total of 9 leveled passages: 700-800 – 2 passages (counted together as one because the standard calls for pairing two texts) 800-900 – 6 passages 900-1000 – 2 passages
Each assessment has three questions. The first question is the most simple, while the third question is the most difficult. The first question requires a basic and surface-level understanding of the reading skill. The second question builds upon the concept a bit more. The third question requires the application of the concept. These three-tiered questions are labeled with shapes (circle, square, triangle) so that the levels are discrete.
How to Use these Assessments:
The leveled questions will give you insight and data for creating your leveled reading groups. You can group students by reading level or by specific strategy. With student groups and pre-assessment data at your fingertips, you can then differentiate instruction for each group as you move through the standard.
Give the post-assessment (same test as the pre-assessment) after the unit is finished to track growth.
