In the mail today came the results of Miss Kat's last reading evaluation at her oral school. They gave her the "Woodcock Johnson III- Tests of Achievement". There are five subtests and then a Broad Reading Score, a Basic Reading Skills score, and a Reading Comprehension score. I will discuss them all.
The first sub-test was "Letter-Word Identification". This test requires the student to identify letters and then to read and pronounce the words correctly. She did not have to know the meaning of the word. Miss Kat scored an 86, which is within the normal range.
The next section measures a student's ability to quickly read simple sentences and decide if a question is true or false. It is "Reading Fluency". The goal is to read as many sentences as possible in the three minute time limit. Miss Kat scored a 91, which is within the normal range.
The next sub-test was "Passage Comprehension". This test requires a student to read a short passage and identify a missing key word. Miss Kat scored a 97, last year she scored a 74. This score shows significant progress and is within the normal range.
The next test measured Miss Kat's ability to apply phonics skills to the pronunciation of unfamiliar words. They were non-sense words. This test is called "Word Attack". She scored a 91, which is within the normal range.
The last sub-test was "Reading Vocabulary". It measures skills in reading words and supplying an appropriate meaning. Miss Kat had to supply an antonym, a synonym, or an analogy. She received a score of 87, which is within the normal range.
The "Broad Reading" cluster is a comprehensive measure of reading achievement that includes reading decoding, reading speed, and ability to comprehend. Miss Kat scored an 89, which is within the normal range.
The "Basic Reading Skills" is a measure of sight vocab, phonics and structural analysis. Miss Kat received a score of 88, which is within the normal range.
And lastly, in "Reading Comprehension", Miss Kat scored a 91, which is within the normal range.
Congratulations Miss Kat, you have officially caught up!!!!!!!!!!!!
