Draw a slash / through each word missed

Skipped words are counted wrong

Added words do not count against them

Wait 3 seconds before giving a student a word. Mark the word as wrong

Dorf retell

DORF Retell

Only do retell if the student was able to read 40 words or more correctly in the passage: Total Words – Errors = Total Words Correct

As the student responds, move your pen through the retell number grid for every word the student says that is on topic.

Do not count words off topic or non-words (um, uh, etc.)

If the student hesitates for 3 seconds, give the prompt “Can you tell me anything more about the story?”

Retell quality is determined by the type of response the student gave
