My thoughts F&P

I currently use this assessment. My school requires it. I think it is valuable and a great tool to make sure you are meeting the needs of your students in reading groups. It allows you to teach on a level that is best for the students.

I would pair it with Jan Richardson's Next Steps to Guided Reading book to help you set up your groups and appropriately teach each group level.

Also, you will want a supplemental assessment for phonemic awareness and phonics. You may not accurately judge students in these two areas, based on the F & P alone. Phonemic awareness is the biggest building block for reading ability, you'll want to fix any holes students may have as a reader before they can move on quickly with the reading levels.
