Reading Grades

I use anecdotal notes mostly for my reading groups. We do not use a basal with tests, so I am constantly looking for ideas of ways to easily get more reading grades. I do not like to spend a lot of time giving assessments, and wondered what others great ideas you all may have

We've been told to use guided reading levels to give grades based on where the students are and where they should be. I wish I had criteria for that because I don't even know how to translate that information to a grade. I'm always scrounging for grades because I choose not to use the basal. I hope people post with some ideas!

We don't use a basal.

*For guided reading, I typically have them take a final 'test' on the
book-independently. I use that for a grade.

*My colleague has a Scholastic Reading Test selection book that I
give 3-4 times per quarter and I use that, too. Thankfully she has
the book, because I don't!

*DRAs are done 3x per year (3rd grade), so that gives me a 'grade
level' grade. (Are they at grade level, 'officially'?)

*Written responses in their reader's notebook.

*Letters to me about what they are reading.

*Various worksheets they do independently, after being taught a lesson and have had practice with it (fact/opinion, etc.). (I do worksheets at times for the accountability and because I do believe they need to be able to complete a 'form', as they will be doing it into adulthood (applications, etc.)).

If I think of more, I'll post. It's just about midnight and I have to be up in 5 short hours. Ugh!

What about an assignment where students work in their reading groups and create a presentation for the class. You can grade them on participation and on the actual presentation.

I completely agree. It's amazing how we aren't given some kind of guideline on how to grade. This is my third year of teaching, and I am still in shock by how subjective grades can be..

For reading, I do a weekly assessment where they read a story and answer comprehensive questions. I also am constantly assessing them orally, where I focus on their fluency and vocabulary recognition. But in terms of putting that informal assessment into a letter grade, it's tricky!

Reading response
reading comprehension checks- independent, guided and listening
fluency- practiced reads using mostly poetry
