  2. TRCOVERVIEW • TRC stands for text reading comprehension, it is a tool used to assess your child’s reading level. This assessment is done individually with each student using leveled books. This reading level can be used to determine appropriate books to read both at school and at home. • Students may test at their frustrational level, instructional level (student is being challenged), or independent level (still challenging, used for seat work & home reading).

  3. TRC • Atlas books cover all levels from A-Z • Oral comprehension questions might ask the students to explain how the character changes from the beginning to the end of the story or to locate information on a specific page • Written comprehension questions are with levels F-Z

  4. TRCEnd of year expected reading behaviors (ccss for ELA): • Decode words with long and short vowels, common vowel teams, regularly spelled two-syllable words with long vowels, common prefixes and suffixes, inconsistent but common spelling-sound correspondences, and grade-appropriate irregular spellings within text • Use context to confirm word reading and understanding • Read grade-level text accurately, at an appropriate rate, and with expression • Ask and answer questions about a text’s key details, central message, main topic, characters, and/or sequence of events or concepts • Recount stories and identify the central message or main topic of a text and its paragraphs • Describe connections between events, concepts, or steps • Describe characters and how they respond to events • Describe the overall structure of a story • Acknowledge different points of view of characters • Use illustrations to understand a text’s characters, setting, and plot

  5. TRCcut scores Proficient • Beginning of Year: I • Middle of Year: J-K • End of Year: L-M Above Proficient • Beginning of Year: J or above • Middle of Year: L or above • End of Year: N or above

  6. MPGoverview • MPG stands for MAP for Primary Grades • Series of tests in reading and math to assess your child’s knowledge • The students use headphones and the test is read to them • MPG helps teachers to identify your child’s strengths in reading and math as well as identify areas your child needs work on • Teachers use this information when assigning students to cooperative learning groups

  7. MPG • Think of MPG as a growth chart that measures your child’s growth in reading and math from year to year • The student are scored on how many questions are answered correctly and on the level of difficulty of each question • Students are assessed in 4 different goals for reading and math each • Reading goals: foundational skills, literature and informational text, vocabulary use and functions, language and writing • Math goals: algebraic thinking, number and operations, measurement and data, geometry

  9. MAP • MAP stands for Measures of Academic Progress • MAP is just like the MPG except: • MAP is given from 2nd-5th grades so the questions the students may see will be at a higher difficulty level • MAP is not read to the students • Students need to have a knowledge of working a mouse to click and drag items and also to scroll through text

  11. Tips • Practice good study habits at home during homework time • Review test taking skills • Read to and with your child daily • Make sure your child gets a good nights sleep the night before test day • Keep the lines of communication open with your child’s teacher about his/her progress and what you can do at home to help your child
