Assessment During Individualized Daily Reading (IDR): Student Conference Logs
- Grades: 3–5
Students keep a conference log in the front of their Reader's Notebook. During our conferences -- in addition to writing on labels that I put in my reading assessment binder -- I want my students to be held accountable for what we discuss during the conferences. For this reason, I write down the goal (the teaching point) that we discussed during the conference so that I can refer to it when I meet with the student in the future.
Since students take their Reader's Notebook home every month for their parents to review, it is nice for parents to see the skills and strategies I am working on with their child.
