Running Recs is an easy way for teachers to check the results for a running record test of reading. Simply enter the number of words read, number of errors and the number of self corrections.
Running Recs will then feedback to you the error rate, percentage rate, self correction rate, and whether the text read is 'easy', 'instructional' or 'hard'.
Great for all classroom teachers who use Running Records to monitor student reading processes and achievement!

Like it, please add timer for words per minute
This app almost does everything that the very expensive Fountas and Pinnell calculator by Heineman does. The one piece of information it doesn't have is a fluency calculation as words per minute. To do this it would require a timer with start and end reading times. If the developer does decide to add a wpm feature, please fix a problem with Heineman's special purpose calculator. On their calculator the teacher must enter the error count quickly. Otherwise, it times out and shuts off. It sometimes times out before I've had a chance to count all the errors in a long, complicated running record. Of course, those are the students for whom I need the best data. Add a words per minute fluency calculation and this app would be absolutely perfect.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
