BADER Fluency includes graded passages for assessing and determining students’ Instructional Levels (typically, within a range of two, where they struggled with word accuracy, appropriate rate, and meaningful phrasing). Marn Frank has prepared a PDF document for presenting leveled passages, several paragraphs at a time. Note: Not all paragraphs or eight passages need to be presented.
Because ATLAS/Hamline University has limited copyright permission from Pearson Education, only MN ABE reading teachers can request this PDF document from ATLAS (the copyright protector); please contact Kristine Kelly for information.
