Third Grade Reading Assessments and the Third Grade Reading Guarantee

Third Grade Parent Meeting September 19,2014

Using data to help your student succeedThird Grade Reading Guarantee (TGRG):

  • All students in grades K-3 are required to take an approved vendor assessment (STAR) or state diagnostic assessment. Batavia Elementary uses STAR Reading for this purpose. All students must be assessed for the TGRG by September 30.

  • Students who score below benchmark on STAR Reading in the fall (urgent or intervention level) are identified as a student needing a Reading Improvement Monitoring Plan (RIMP)

  • Students who are identified on a RIMP receive Corrective Reading daily. Corrective Reading addresses decoding and comprehension deficiencies in reading.


  • Reading Improvement Plan

    • Highly Qualified Teacher

    • Corrective Reading

    • Orton-Gillingham (Garrison/Harig)

    • A letter has been mailed home to you regarding your child if they are put on a RIMP plan. We will also be discussing their RIMPS during Parent Teacher Conferences and parent meetings through out the year.

OAA Information

  • Fall Reading OAA – October 7 : All students will take the Fall OAA unless they are exempt on their IEP.

  • Test results will arrive mid to late November

  • Students must achieve a score of 394 or higher for the purpose of the TGRG. This does include students on an IEP and 504.

  • Students who do not achieve a passing score of 400 will be able to take the Spring OAA.

  • Students who do not pass the Spring OAA will be invited to attend our summer intervention. Students will be provided with another opportunity to pass the OAA.

Meeting the Requirements of the TGRG:

  • Students must pass an OAA assessment (Fall, Spring, or Summer) with a minimum score of 394

  • Alternatives to the OAA – The state allows us to use the Terra Nova test as an alternative to the OAA. We give this assessment in March. The cut score for this assessment has not been released yet for the 2014-2015 school year. Last year, the score was 593.

Students who score 400 or higher

  • If your student passes the fall OAA with a 400 or better, they will be taking the Next Generation Assessment (formally known as PARCC)

  • The cut score of 394 is for the purpose of the TGRG only

  • The NGA is based on common core standards.

  • The NGA can be taken either paper/pencil or on computer

Our Results:

  • Fall 2013 – 65% students passed (400 or higher)

  • Spring 2014 – 95% students passed (400 or higher)
