Example: f a child passes a Level A Non-Fiction text and the next level that the child should read is a Level B Fiction, but they are unable to pass the Fiction, can you try them on the Non-Fiction B or should you not try the other genre and just say that the child is unable to read a Level B?

No, you should not use both F and NF of the same level at the same assessment conference. The behaviors expected for each level are the same for F and NF. Look closely at the behaviors described in the Continuum to decide the best placement for instruction. The Assessment Guide explains how to analyze the reading "looking beyond the numbers." It also explains that is it not necessary to use both texts at the same assessment interval on pages 3 and 17.
Best wishes!
