I would like to know what is an acceptable amount of growth in one school year.
Should it be a different amount for different reading levels?

Hello,

The amount of growth in a single year depends upon the student. Typically students advance through at least a few levels each year, but as the levels increase so does the difficulty of the texts, so advancement through the higher levels is sometimes slower than through the lower levels.

Below are some general criteria for Instructional, Independent, and Hard reading:


Fountas & Pinnell Criteria for Instructional Level Reading

At levels A-K:
90-94% accuracy with excellent or satisfactory comprehension or 95-100% accuracy with limited comprehension.
At levels L-Z:
95-97% accuracy with excellent or satisfactory comprehension or 98-100% accuracy with limited comprehension.

Fountas & Pinnell Criteria for Independent Level Reading

At levels A-K:
95-100% accuracy with excellent or satisfactory comprehension.
At levels L-Z:
98-100% accuracy with excellent or satisfactory comprehension.

Fountas & Pinnell Criteria for Hard Level Reading

At levels A-K:
Below 90% accuracy with any comprehension score.
At levels L-Z:
Below 95% accuracy with any comprehension score.


We hope this helps!

Thanks for the update. I know each student is different, but we were wondering when looking a district-wide data if their is a difference between the expectations for lower level readers and higher readers for one school year.
We are working with intervention students and are tracking their individual progress and amount of growth for the school year. It would be helpful to hanve some general ranges.

You might also find the Quarterly Instructional Level Expectations for Reading table to be helpful. There are also additional progress monitoring forms available for all grades; they provide a snapshot of approximately where your students should be at each month of the school year: http://www.heinemann.com/fountasandpinnell/supportingMaterials.aspx
