Istation's ISIP™ Oral Reading Fluency How To Guide

Istation is proud to announce a new resource available within our Interactive Help Center. The all-new ISIP™ Oral Reading Fluency How-To Guide behind the login walks you through everything you need to know related to access, administration, scoring, and interpreting results for ISIP Oral Reading Fluency (ORF)!

Istations Help CenterHow to get there: Visit Istation's Help Center and search keywords surrounding ORF to pull up the ISIP ORF How-To Guide.

Istation’s digital oral reading fluency assessment is the latest time-saving educational technology from Istation. Powered by voice recognition and AI, ISIP ORF allows teachers to automatically measure oral reading fluency from digitally recorded passages for students in grades K through 5 in both English and Spanish. 

Visit the page to learn more about:

  • General ORF information – Learn what ORF is and how it works. Discover why it’s used as a screener and progress-monitoring tool as well as how long it will take for your students to complete the assessment.
  • Technical Requirements – Learn which operating systems and browsers are supported with ORF. Find out what type of equipment is needed to record students’ reading passages.
  • How to Access ISIP ORF – Discover what students and teachers need to do to access ORF. We have created access guides that explain step-by-step what to do when using the ISIP ORF as students or logging in to our web portal as teachers. 
  • Auto-Scoring vs Manual-Scoring – Read about the different steps related to scoring manually or automatically, depending on which option is available to you. Auto-scoring is currently available for grades 2 and 3 in English but is still in development for all other grades and ISIP ORF in Spanish.
  • How ORF Results Are Reported – Learn how to interpret ORF scores and how our norming process works.

In addition to the above, this article also discusses the following:

  • On-Demand Assessment (ODA) – This feature located on the left side of the Classroom page allows you to assign additional ISIP ORF assessments to students. If a student needs to be reassessed in ORF for any reason, a new passage will be given once an ODA is assigned. 
  • ORF Videos – We have a number of videos surrounding ORF from the student experience to the teacher experience, in both English and Spanish. See an example here:
