Post your great ideas and thoughts about MAP Reading Fluency here!
After having my 1st grader take the fluency test as a group I'm wondering if we less noise interference to capture accurate data. The recordings that received NS (no score) sounded ok to me but perhaps the computer wasn't able to decipher the voice of the student being tested.
The full data reports I reviewed did not have the level of detail for instructional planning that I feel I need for differentiated skill groups. Also, to get a miscue analysis I need to listen to the recordings and complete. Instead, I would prefer to sit with my students 1:1.
Thanks for your response, Jessica. Let me ping Danielle Kerns to see if she's got some insight on that background noise issue, and I'll pass your feedback on the reports to the team. MAP Reading Fluency is still very new, and we appreciate hearing about what works and what doesn't as we make it even better.
Hello Jessica! Tests that receive an NS instead of an actual score is due to the confidence threshold level. This threshold was developed based on our initial student testing to maximize the agreement between human judgment and the artificial intelligence (AI) scores. Confidence is affected by background noise (signal/noise ratio) and by the degree to which the student reads from the text. A student's headset might also affect this so I would suggest starting here first. You can view more information about this with: MAP Reading Fluency: Resolving headset issues. Please reach out to Partner Support if you would like more help in resolving this issue.
To add to what Danielle said, I was told that if the student read less than 75% of the passage, it would show up as NS even with clear vocals, so either retesting or hand scoring would be options in that case.
Hi Jessica! I am tagging several of our consultants who have facilitated virtual Reading Fluency workshops to see if they have anything to add to this discussion. Stay tuned!
