Begin test administration with the story that corresponds to the student's grade level. If the examiner knows the student has reading problems, begin testing below the student's grade level. As the student reads each story out loud, mark errors in the Examiner Record Booklet. Only the Fluency Score is used to determine basals and ceilings.
This test may be administered and interpreted by professionals who have professional training in assessment and reading disorders. These examiners include teachers, school psychologists, and diagnosticians.
