Reading Assessments Aloud
As a new teacher in second grade, I was taken back when I was told to read the Reading and ELA assessments out loud to the students. The ethical perspective of this matter is the standard clearly is that the student can read and comprehend text on a second grade level. With this being said, the assessment should be on a second grade reading level so that students can read it and be successful on the assessment . Then what of the fidelity of the assessment? Should i still continue to read the assessments out loud to the students?

In my internship, my cooperating teacher reads multiple assessments to students that need it. She will read the assessment to any student that asks, if it will help them understand what is being asked of them. I think that you should continue to read the assessments out loud, especially if you were told to do so.

Sometimes reading the assessment out loud can be very beneficial to the student.

Certain students are in need of this type of reinforcement so they have focus on what they're doing.

Reading assessments aloud should be acceptable, but they should be able to read grade level content so practice those skills in the classroom constantly.

I believe it should be based off the students, and what is takes to make sure that student is successful in the classroom. If the student needs it than it is vital to be able to provide this accomadation.

As an intern and a student i have seen and heard many teachers read the assessments outloud to students. If you are only reading the assessment aloud and not giving answers then the fidelity of the assessmet should not be compromised.. I would still read the assessment aloud.

It depends on the student and what their needs are. How would you assess a student that is blind? Just because they can't read the test doesn't mean they don't know the information or what it is asking. If you aren't required to read the assessment, then I wouldn't unless a student asks you to. But if you are instructed to do so, then you need to.
