We took the SRI test today to gauge reading lexile score. My understanding (from TFA) is that an improvement of 100 points would be the equivalent of a year’s growth. With that understanding, 150-200 points growth is a good TFA style goal for reading improvement. My class’ average growth so far this year is 116 points! Woohoo! We are well on our way to surpassing the goal! Last year the average growth was 190 in my reading group so I hope I can pass that up. I had 7 students grow over 200 points already. I had a few who decreased lexile score. I’m hoping that is a fluke and they will show more improvement next time we test in the spring.
