We are wondering if you plan to revise the 10 Month Progress Monitoring chart to reflect the school closures and lack of "in person" guided reading instruction. If you are not, will you be releasing a guide for how to readjust levels for students who have been participating in remote learning since March 2020?

For example, we had 1st graders leave us in March "on level" at Level G. If they come back in September and are still reading at a Level G - could we consider those students to be on level (even though the chart states that students at the beginning of 2nd grade should be reading at Level I/J)? Or would they be considered below grade level benchmark?

Thank you!

You have asked a great question and we currently have not received any new direction. The challenges are many, since schools used a variety of responses for continued instruction. This variation of continued instruction and support would greatly impact the development of a new chart. You could definitely use the 10 Month Progress Monitoring Chart to assist the decisions for your own district, based on the time school was no longer is session, as you suggested. However we currently have no data or research to support this. According to the chart for grade 1, the reasonable instructional expectation for students in March would be Level H indicating that the student could be considered reading on grade level. https://www.fountasandpinnell.com/Authenticated/ResourceDocuments/ProgressMonitor-10mos%20-%20by%20level_OCT2017.pdf

Again, these are such unprecedented times that I would encourage you to keep checking the blog for updates. The most current FAQ blog is linked here: http://fpblog.fountasandpinnell.com/faqs-for-fountas-pinnell-literacy-remote-learning

We continue attempting to update and support teachers and parents during this time.
