Does your school set quarterly benchmarks for reading fluency? If so, what are the rates for each quarter and how are they assessed? Do you use Dibels, Aimsweb, or something else? Do you administer the assessments or does someone else pull students for assessment? What do you personally think is an appropriate end of the year rate for first grade? Do you also assess nonsense word fluency? What is your personal opinion about NWF? Do you think these two components are adequate indicator's of a student's growth and achievement in reading?

We use Aimsweb. Any intervention specialist or administrators who are available help test as well as the classroom teachers. We only do Oral Reading Fluency at this time of the year. I believe the 50th percentile is around 65wcpm at this time of the year. Our average in first grade was 91 wcpm. We do not use the nonsense words at all. Don't see much value in them. I like the ORF scores and feel they are a good indicator of my students' reading abilities.

We use Literacy first. The students must be at or above the 50th percentile. Beginning: 12wpm, middle: 31wpm and end: 62wpm. We get the orf number from the Star test.
