3monkeys Posted December 6, 2011 Share Posted December 6, 2011 After reading a thread earlier about standardized testing, I decided to give my ds8 a reading one. It was the test from Texas public schools. Anyway, my son reads okay but not chapter books and his fluency is yet to be desired. He struggles with simple words yet figures out difficult ones (sometimes). It took him 2 1/2 hours to take test, there was no time limit. He was completely exhausted when done because lots of stories to read and questions to answer. He did the test solo without my help. I sat in on some of it as he read aloud. I noticed he would skip words he didn't know or say something completely wrong but still got answers right. So with all that said, the score came out to 705. The highest score was 670 or higher is Advanced High. I can not even believe it. Out of 49 questions, he got 43 correct. How can this be without fluency? Does 2nd grade just have low expectations for reading? It wasn't super easy. I truly thought he would fall somewhere in the average range. I just don't know how to take this information....can you tell?:tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
