While discussing alignment of assessments today, one of our staff asked about a specific potential scoring issue on the ipads. If a student makes multiple attempts at a word (for example, to/touch/teeth for tooth) but does not self correct, there should be an error for each incorrect attempt. As far as we know from using the apps last year, in the app, you can only list one substitution and if you write multiple in the section to document what students said, it still only counts as one error. Does anyone know how to have the errors counted correctly?

Thank you for a great question. The correct scoring, in a Reading Record, is one error per word in the text. In other words, if the student makes multiple attempts such as: "to/touch/teeth" for tooth (the word in the text), all attempts are recorded, but it is scored as only one error since the child is working on the word. In other words, the app is scoring correctly. To inform instruction, my analysis would be: student is making multiple attempts with consistent initial sound to letter with some final sounds. In attempts to self correct, the child uses mostly visual cues with some meaning.

I hope this clarifies the issue. Best wishes!
