In this new era of life without levels, it’s important to formally evaluate your children’s achievement and progress, and get the reassurance you need that they’re on track to reach age-related expectations.
So we thought it would be useful to explain exactly what assessment resources you have at your fingertips within Rapid.
Reassuringly, assessment is a key part of the Rapid Reading method, showing you when children are fully ready to move on to the next level.
Benchmark books for each Stage are accompanied by running record sheets and comprehension questions in the Teaching Guides. These benchmark books are available in print only as they are intended to be used in the controlled environment of a one-to-one or small group session.
These assessments are great for allowing you to prove progress among your struggling readers – as well as proving the impact of the programme, which is particularly useful if you bought it using Pupil Premium funding.
All the best,
The Rapid Team
