Running records can be done quickly on any piece of text at any time. An informal running record will show how a student is using the processing systems to make meaning. The one-hundred-word box provides a quick and simple way to know when a student has reached the 100-word mark making the calculations and computations more automatic.

The comprehension matrix includes open ended prompts for both fiction and nonfiction texts. It is broken down into categories of Thinking WITHIN the text, BEYOND the text and ABOUT the text.

It takes about 5 minutes with one child and provides an abundance of valuable information for instructional decision making. This form can be placed in a student’s Literacy Assessment Portfolio to document their progress.
