Scholastic Benchmark Book Assessment Guide

The guide includes information and guidance in the assessment of reading accuracy, fluency and comprehension. It also provides directions for completing the Running Record Data Collection form.

Word Count: Total number of words the student reads aloud to the assessor as part of the running record

Page(s): Pages to be used for running record – These are the pages the student reads aloud from the benchmark book to the assessor. The running record should be completed. Then, the student will read independently before the comprehension assessment is administered. The student will read all of the pages in lower level books and a portion of the book in higher levels.

Error (E) Tally: Enter a tally mark(s) in the column to indicate how many errors the students made on the line


Self-Correct (SC) Tally: Enter a tally mark(s) in the column to indicate how many self-corrections the student made on the line

Meaning (M): Does it make sense? Enter a tally mark in the column if the student makes an error but the substitution makes sense in the sentence

Structure (S): Does it sound right? Enter a tally mark in the column if the student makes an error but the substitution sounds right

Visual (V): Does it look right? Enter a tally mark in the column if the student makes an error but the substitution looks right

Notes for Teaching Point(s): After administering and analyzing the running record, teachers determine one or two teaching points – one or two skills the student needs to master to move forward as a reader

Accuracy Rate: Accuracy rate is reported as a percentage and is calculated by dividing the number of words read correctly by the number of total words read. Use the chart to determine the reading accuracy rate based on the number of errors made in the running record text.

Calculating the Fluency Rate: Follow the directions on the Scholastic Benchmark Book Assessment Running Record to calculate the fluency rate – Fluency rates are calculated for levels D-Z.

Scholastic Benchmark Book Comprehension Assessment

Score: Each comprehension assessment consists of five questions. The questions are designed to represent three explicit questions and two implicit questions. Students must answer four out of five questions for comprehension to be considered at the independent level.


Answer Responses: Likely responses to the comprehension questions are italicized and entered on the document. It is recommended teachers use the white space provided for each question to script student responses. This will provide valuable information concerning the depth of comprehension.

Running Record Data Collection

The data may be used to plan whole group, small group and individual teaching points. It is designed to be used as a data collection tool over time.
