The Literacy Dive Podcast

Nov 30, 2020

Today, we are taking a deep dive into running records. Why do we use them? How do we use them? What do all those acronyms and codes really mean?! If you are currently wondering one or more of these questions, I will walk you through the ins and outs of a running record. You can also grab my free running record templates and cheat sheet referenced in this episode here.


Key Points:

  • Running Records are forms to document student reading behaviors, errors, accuracy, self-corrections, fluency, and comprehension
  • Use the forms to determine if a text is independent, instructional, or frustrational
  • Formal Running Records - administer three times per year (beginning, middle, end) 
  • Informal Running Records - administer weekly or bi-weekly during guided reading
  • Learn about all the boxes, codes, and definitions
  • Use Running Record data to drive intentional teaching points and reading instruction
