Irene and Gay,

We are having a discussion at my school about the role that the self-correction rate has in determining which instructional text level is best for a student. Some teachers do not use the SC rate at all in their decisions about instructional levels. Some teachers insist we must consider the SC rate. (Also, our comprehension scores vary from teacher to teacher.)

Can you help us decide what is best for our students?
Thank you!

Dear Kellie,
Thank you for your question. Self-correction is a behavior that changes over time. You might find the chapter on self correction in When Readers Struggle very interesting for your discussion. We would not use self-correction rate to determine instructional level. We would use it as one factor in considering a student’s placement level. Be careful not to hold a reader at a lower level unless you have good rationales. When you have determined the instructional level at which you can teach for effective behaviors, you can prioritize teaching for self-monitoring and self-correction behavior at that level.

Our best to you and your team!
Irene and Gay
