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

  3. What’s New?For the 2013-14 FLKRS Administration • Monitoring features were added to the Progress Monitoring and Reporting Network (PMRN) in 2012-13 for School Districts to track the level of completion by their schools. District testing coordinators should monitor the progress of all schools in entering their ECHOSTM and FAIR scores during the first 30 instructional days and insure that all schools have submitted their scores prior to the 30th day. 3 3

  4. What’s New?For the 2013-14 FLKRS Administration • Open 30 Day Window – When principals register their schools they are required to enter the first date of classes which creates the calendar that determines the 30 day window. Teachers should log in and change their password prior to the start of school so they have 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. 4 4

  5. RemindersFor the 2013-14 FLKRS Administration • Public schools arerequiredto administer the FLKRS (FAIR-K and ECHOSTM) online. • Non-public schools may administer both portions of the FLKRS. • FLKRS Kits are sent directly to districts and non-public schools. • School districts were asked to provide the Department with their FLKRS training dates and locations and were provided a list of non-public schools and their contact information. The Department will also be offering training for non-public schools. 5 5

  18. English Language Learners Unless a child arrived in the United States in the last 30 days they should be screened. • FLKRS Overview Participation Status Descriptions 18

  19. FLKRS Overview Participation Status Descriptions Students who have been retainedin kindergarten are not included in the administration of the FLKRS.

  20. FLKRS Overview Participation Status Descriptions Students who werealready screened in another school do not need to be re-screened.

  21. Purpose Why do we screen kindergarteners? To comply with Section 1002.69(1), Florida Statutes, (F.S.) “The department shall require that each school district administer the statewide kindergarten screening to each kindergarten student in the school district within the first 30 school days of each school year.” And section 1002.67, Florida Statutes, (F.S.) Performance standards; curricula and accountability. 1)(a) The department shall develop and adopt performance standards for students in the Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program. The performance standards must address the age-appropriate progress of students in the development of: 2. Emergent literacy skills, including oral communication, knowledge of print and letters, phonemic and phonological awareness, and vocabulary and comprehension development. 21 21

  22. PurposeUse of Screening Results to set the Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Readiness Rate Section 1002.69(5), F.S. The State Board of Education shall adopt procedures for the department to annually calculate each private prekindergarten provider’s and public school’s kindergarten readiness rate, which must be expressed as the percentage of the provider’s or school’s students who are assessed as ready for kindergarten. 22 22

  23. 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. 23 23

  25. FLKRS OverviewWhat are the components of FLKRS? A subset of the Early Childhood Observation System™ (ECHOS™) The first measure of the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading – K (FAIR-K) 25 25

  26. FLKRS OverviewWhich measures of the ECHOS™ are included in the FLKRS? ECHOS™ Domains Language and Literacy Mathematics Social and Personal Skills (Approaches to Learning) Science Social Studies Physical Development and Fitness Creative Arts 26

  27. FLKRS OverviewWhich tasks of the FAIR-K are included in the FLKRS? Broad Screen/Progress Monitoring Tool Letter Naming Task Phonemic Awareness Task 27 27

  32. 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) 32 32

  33. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen/Progress Monitoring Tool Provides a Probability of Reading Success score for each child 33

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

  35. FLKRS/FAIR-K Overview Broad Screen - Letter Naming Task • Total of ten items • Child identifies the letter name 35

  36. 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 36

  37. 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). 37

  47. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview How is the ECHOS™ administered? Teachers observe students, record their observations on the FLKRS Class Record Form and enter the results into PMRN. 47

  48. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Planning for Observations Teachers should review the benchmarks and domains so they are familiar with the behaviors and skills they need to observe and the context Incidental observations Planned observations they should be observed in. 48

  49. FLKRS/ECHOS™ Overview Planning for Observations With careful planning, it is 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 49

  50. 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. 50
