A student took the Adaptive Oral Reading assessment in MAP Reading Fluency and did not score well during the Sentence Reading Fluency portion of the test, however, the test proceeded to oral reading instead of adapting to foundational skills.

The Adaptive Oral Reading benchmark assessment will only adapt down to Foundational Skills for students in grade 3 or lower.

To assess grade 4 or higher students in Foundational Skills, you can assign the Foundational Skills assessment directly to the student, instead of assigning Adaptive Oral Reading. Their Foundational Skills results will be compared to 3rd grade expectation levels. See   Students showing Below Expectation in Foundational Skills

If you want to continue monitoring the student's oral reading ability, you can   assign the Progress Monitoring - Oral Reading assessments, which allow you to select a custom text level that is appropriate for the student. If it is unclear what text level to choose, you can start at the lowest level, <300L, and adjust from there based on the student's progress and comprehension.
