  3. Agenda Welcome and Introductions What’s New? Reminders Purpose FLKRS Part 1 FLKRS Overview BREAK FLKRS Part 2 K-2 Electronic Scoring Tool (EST)Overview Wrap Up Questions & Answers 3

  4. What’s New?For the 2012-13 FLKRS Administration • For some English Language Learners, the FAIR-K may not be an appropriate instrument.However, unlessEnglish Language Learnersarrived in the United States in the last 30 days and have sufficient difficulty speaking, reading, writing, or understanding the English language,theyshould be screened. • Monitoring features have been added to the Progress Monitoring and Reporting Network (PMRN) for School Districts to track the level of completion by their schools. 4 4

  5. What’s New?For the 2012-13 FLKRS Administration • Open 30 Day Window – Teachers will have open access to the PMRN for 30 instructional days. All scores will be automatically saved by system on the 30th day. • Public schools who do not use the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading – K (FAIR-K) for progress monitoring ONLYneed to administer theEarly Childhood Observation System™ (ECHOS™) and the Broad Screen of the FAIR-K. 5 5

  6. RemindersFor the 2012-13 FLKRS Administration • Public schools arenow requiredto administer the FLKRS (FAIR-K and ECHOS) online. • Non-public schools maynow administer both portions of the FLKRS. • FLKRS Kits will be sent directly to districts and non-public schools. • School districts should provide the Department with their FLKRS training dates and locations for non-public schools. 6 6

  7. Purpose Why do we screen kindergarteners? To comply with Section 1002.69(1), Florida Statutes, (F.S.) the Florida Department of Education is required to establish a kindergarten readiness screening based upon the performance standards adopted by the department. 7 7

  8. PurposeWho should be screened? All kindergarten students Each child who was enrolled in the VPK Education program - Section 1002.69(1)&(4), F.S. 8 8

  9. PurposeWho may administer the kindergarten screening? Reminder Each public schoolis required to administer a kindergarten readiness screening to all kindergarten students in the school district within the first 30 school days of each school year. Non-public schools may administer the statewide kindergarten screening to each kindergarten student who was enrolled in the VPK Education Program (in the previous school year). - Section 1002.69(1), F.S. 9 9

  10. Purpose How will FLKRS data be used? To inform instruction To provide parents with useful informationabout their child’s readiness for kindergarten To annually calculate a readiness ratefor non-public and public school providers of the VPK Education Program - Section 1002.69(2)&(5), F.S. 10 10

  21. For some English Language Learners, the FAIR-K may not be an appropriate instrument. However, unless English Language Learners arrived in the United States in the last 30 days and have sufficient difficulty speaking, reading, writing, or understanding the English language, they should be screened.

  28. Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading Kindergarten (FAIR-K) Overview 28 28

  29. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen/Progress Monitoring Tool • Tasks • Letter Naming • Phonemic Awareness (blending or onset and rime) • Administered to all public and non- publickindergarten students (3-5 minutes) 29 29

  30. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen/Progress Monitoring Tool Provides a Probability of Reading Success score for each child 30

  31. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen/Progress Monitoring Tool A score of .67 or above = READY on FAIR for kindergarten

  32. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen - Letter Naming Task • Total of ten items • Child identifies the letter name 32

  33. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen - Letter Naming Task Decision Rules All students GO on to the next Broad Screen assessment task. Phonemic Awareness 33

  34. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen - Phonemic Awareness Task • Total of ten items • Student blends words at the word part and phoneme level • Administered orally 34

  35. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Aligned to the Standards Adopted for Use in VPK Emergent Reading Shows age-appropriate phonological awareness Benchmark f: Child combines onset and rime to form a familiar one-syllable word with and without pictorial support (e.g., when shown several pictures, and adult says /c/ + “at”, child can select the picture of the cat). 35

  36. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen/Progress Monitoring Tool ONLYpublic schools that use the FAIR-K for progress monitoringarerequired to GO on to the first Broad Diagnostic Inventory tasks. 36

  37. Overview 37 37

  38. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview How is the ECHOS™ administered? Teachers observe students to determine what they know and are able to do and record their observations (on the FLKRS Class Record Form). 38

  39. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Administration Requirements ECHOS™ should be completed by a teacher, trained in its administration. Kindergarten teachers may NOT administer the ECHOS™ to students they taught in VPK. 39

  40. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Frequency of Demonstration The behaviors and skills prescribed in each benchmark need to be observed only once for the appropriate indicator to be entered. 40

  41. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Planning for Observations Teachers should remember the behaviors and skills they want to observe Teachers should observe the behaviors in context Incidental observations Planned observations 41

  42. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Planning for Observations With careful planning, it is easily possible to complete FLKRS/ECHOS™ for a class of students within the first 30 school days, using various types of class activities. Whole Class Large Group Small Group Individual 42

  43. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Planning for Observations • Get organized to record observations Optional Materials FLKRS Class Record Form Note cards Sticky notes/Mailing labels 43

  44. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Domain/Benchmark/Indicators Item 1: Concepts of Print Knows how to use a book Shows curiosity about all aspects of print Identifies front and back of book and where story begins Recognizes that the purpose of print is to tell the story Domain Benchmark Indicators 44

  45. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Suggested Classroom Activities Item 14: Production, Distribution and Consumption Explores the kinds of work that people do and how that work benefits family and community. Whole Class - The teacher asks questions following a story about community helpers and records each student’s response. Small Group or Individual - The students may dictate a story to accompany a picture they’ve drawn about community helpers. 45
