What’s New for ISIP ORF in English This Fall
ISIP ORF in English has added passages for grades 4-5 to the digital assessment. Students can record themselves reading grade-leveled passages, which teachers can score at their convenience using the manual scoring interface. Teachers can use the Hasbrouck and Tindal (2017) national norms to interpret scores, which are provided in our teacher resources.
Istation has also created new landing pages where you can find a collection of oral reading fluency practice resources arranged by grade level. Located in the Teacher Resources section of the Istation website, these landing pages include lessons on accuracy, rate, and prosody (expression) as well as practice passages.
In addition to the practice resources, Istation has developed a series of oral reading fluency passages specifically designed for progress monitoring. These printable passages allow teachers to choose the level that matches their students’ reading ability, and there are enough passages for bimonthly assessments. We have also included detailed progress monitoring instructions to assist in passage selection, scoring, and reading-level adjustments. On-level, monthly progress monitoring is also available digitally using ISIP Oral Reading Fluency.
