Running records, developed by Marie M. Clay, are a method for observing and assessing a child’s oral reading. The Record of Reading app is designed to provide an electronic form for taking a running record. The app provides embedded formulas for the accuracy and self-correction rate (no need for a calculator!), but of course, the teacher does all the coding and analysis. Once the running record is complete, it can be saved in a file or emailed. In addition, the app records the student’s voice while the teacher simultaneously takes the record. When replaying the running record, the oral reading and the record are synced. For more information on taking running records, please see "An Observation Survey of Early Literacy Achievement" (Clay, 2005).

More features please ...

This is a great app which I will definitely be using in the classroom. It would be great if we're able to enter our own set of text per line instead of just the option of the background image, or import text from another source. Each line of text should have enough space in between to mark the miscues. Other apps I've looked into also has popular levelled reading sets included in the app.

Great App

This is an amazing app! It's great that you can make comments. I would mostly use this to record students comprehension answers. The only problem is if you go over three lines it does not show up on the PDF. But an amazing app worth downloading.

Running record

This app has a lot of potential however there are bugs which need to be fixed. I am unable to save records as every time I click on save it exits out of the app. I hope these issues get sorted because I can see huge benefits in using this tool.
