iPad Screenshots


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).

Nice idea with current technology

This is certainly a new frontier -- moving what Marie Clay designed to be done on a blank piece if paper to our latest technologies. Thank you, folks at Clemson, for your tech work to make this happen. Time will tell us how we use this. I can see how the playback feature may be useful for reading recovery teacher leaders in their training classes and coaching sessions.

My only complaint is that the interface with my "typical" stylus is fairly imprecise. Hard to write miscues and indicate self corrections and repeats with the equivalent of a crayon. I will try again with a better stylus -- I'm looking at the jot pro and bamboo as options.

Excellent app!

I have been using this app for years. I haven't seen any other app that can do the same.

Need some improvements

I don't think this app is user friendly. It has great potential with a few changes. Landscape view is a great start.
