Retells are a great tool for teachers to diagnose comprehension problems. This scoring guide will help you be able to rate retells in a consistent manner, no matter what the reading level or length of the passage. Students are given points for different categories and then add the points to determine the child's score. Use one form for each of your students to track progress over time or use form to keep track of the entire class. The scoring guide comes with instructions to keep scoring consistent among several people.
