Case Study Student Reading Records: Benchmark Assessment System 2

An assessment conference in the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System represents a child's reading at that point in time. Using standardized procedures and multiple leveled texts, the conference provides a reliable picture of the child's reading strengths and weaknesses at that moment. These case studies of progress monitoring with student reading records will help you examine ways of looking at individual progress and monitoring adequate progress over time.
