Oral Reading Record Forms

An Oral Reading Record is an excellent tool for assessing the way in which a child processes print. By taking and analyzing oral reading records, teachers can determine the strategies and cueing systems children are using and can identify those for which they need some support. For those children who have not yet developed print concepts, assessment should be based on observed behaviours during shared reading experiences.
