Have you ever been in a difficult situation when your administrator asks you why a student who is reading below-level has such high grades?
Students are often able to successfully complete tasks such as putting words into alphabetical order, identifying ending chunks, or other similar assignments without necessarily being an on-level reader, resulting in a grade average that is not a true reflection of the student's reading abilities.
The Guided Reading Assessment Plan gives you various options to use for giving your students a grade based on their reading level and/or performance during guided reading lessons.

I am currently a 3rd Grade Math and Science teacher, but I have previously taught 2nd Grade for 1 year and 1st Grade for 16 years. Over the past 18 years, I have been a State of Texas Trainer for the 1st Grade Reading Academies, the 1st and 2nd Grade Team Leader, the Campus Technology Department Head, and a member of the District Curriculum Writing Team. I believe that frequent assessment, whether formal or informal, should guide instruction in order to meet the needs of every child.
