History Developed by Dr. Willian S. Gray in 1960 (he died) First published in 1963 after being completed by Dr. Helen Robinson 5th edition published in 2012 by Pearson/Psychcorp Authors: J. Lee Wiederholt and Brian R. Bryant Description of the Test Consists of examiners manual, student book (form A and form B) that is read aloud. Form A examiner record booklet (25 come in a set) Form B examiner record booklet (25 come in a set) Purpose of the Test Used to help identify students

who are significantly behind in reading and determine the degree. Determine oral reading strengths and weaknesses (between rate, accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. Monitor student progress in reading intervention Conduct research Relevant Population Any student age 6 to 23 and 11 months Administration and Scoring Testing time is about 15 45 minutes Entry point is determined by grade level Grades 1-3: story 1 Grades 4-5: story 3 Grade 6-9: story 4

Grades 10-11: story 5 12-postsecondary: story 6 Student reads the story while the examiner times passage and marks reading errors Administrator asks the student comprehension questions The time and accuracy of reading and correctly answered questions are recorded Recording and Interpreting Information is recorded in the booklet in identifying information, GORT-5 scores, performance summary, corresponding descriptive terms, GORT-5 miscues, summary of other reading behaviors, prosody, and record of performance. GORT-5 Scores: Rate Score time (in seconds) in which the student reads the passage; corresponds with a score number Accuracy Score deviations from print (number of

misread words); corresponds with a score number Fluency Score Rate Score + Accuracy Score Comprehension Score number of correctly answered questions about the story (out of 5) All are totaled which become the raw totals that other areas of the performance summary are based on Recording and Interpreting contd Performance Summary: Raw totals from rate, accuracy, fluency, and comprehension are compared to charts detailing the age equivalent, grade equivalent, percentile rank, and scaled scores. Scaled scores are totaled as a Sum of Scaled Scores. This is then compared to a chart that details Oral reading Percentile Rank and Oral Reading Index (ORI) Scaled and index scores correlate to descriptive terms: very poor, poor, below average, average, above average, superior, and very superior GORT-5 Miscues:

25 miscues (self-correction and substitution) are analyzed according to five categories: Meaning Similarity, Function Similarity, Graphic/Phonemic Similarity, Multiple Sources, and Self-Correction. Each category is totaled and a percentage is determined Recording and Interpreting contd Summary of Other Reading Behaviors Substitutions, omissions, mispronunciations, additions, reversal, and hesitations are totaled Other observations such as posture, word-by-word reading, and poor enunciation are checked off if exhibited. Prosody The student is rated from 1 4 (1 being little/no attempt, 4 being consistently appropriate) on expression, volume, phrasing, smoothness, and pacing

Normative Information The GORT-5 was normed on a sample of 2,556 students in 33 states. Collection of a normative sample that is representative of the nation as a whole with regard to geographic region, gender, race, Hispanic status, parents educational attainment, household income, and exceptionality status (as compared with those reported by the US Bureau of the Census for school-age and post-secondary populations) Reliability Standard Error of Measurement (SEM): Rate, Accuracy, Fluency, Comprehension = 1 Oral Reading Index = ranges from 2

to 4, so averaged to 3 Alternate Forms The averaged correlation coefficients for Rate, Accuracy, Fluency, and Comprehension exceed .85. Test-Retest Sample of 248 Students ages 6 23 who varied widely in reading ability; 566% female, 44% male; 70% white, 22% African American, 4% Asian, 4% mixed or other; 27% Hispanic; 5% with disability/exceptionality; across Texas, New York, north Dakota, California, and Nebraska The magnitude of the coefficients for the combined sample ranges from .82 to .9 and is large enough to strongly support the idea that the scores on both forms have acceptable testretest reliability. Interscorer Four studies were performed in which interscorer agreement:

>.99 approach 1.0 approached 1.0 >.86 Validity involves the systematic examination of the test content to determine whether it covers a representative sample of the behavior domain to be measured (Anastasi & Urbina, 1997, p. 115). Scaled scores and index scores were correlated with the scores from 5 reading assessments: Nelson-Denny Reading Test, Reading Observation Scale, Test of Silent Contextual Reading Fluency, Test of Silent Reading Efficiency and Comprehension, and Test of Silent Word Reading Fluency Correlation coefficients were described as very large for fluency, comprehension, rate, and Oral Reading Index and large for accuracy. The correlations between the GORT-5 and the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) achievement test are reported as large or very large, providing evidence of a strong relationship between the GORT-5 and academic achievement. The GORT-5 exhibited a moderate correlation with the WISC-IV,

with the ORI correlated to a large degree. Intercorrelation of the GORT-5s scores had coefficients of .75 (very large) or higher. The information provided suggests that the GORT-5 is a valid measure of reading ability. Testing Sarah by Alexis Percentile Rank Scaled Score Descriptive Term Rate 63 11 Average

Accuracy 37 9 Average Fluency 50 10 Average Comprehension 50 10 Average

Oral Reading Index 50 100 Average Sarah made very few errors in the easiest stories, through Story 7 (approximately a 7th grade reading level). Her errors became far more frequent beginning with Story 9, with her Accuracy score plummeting from a 3 (of a possible 5) on Story 8 to a 1 on Story 9. The majority of Sarahs errors were in: - Syllabication (aristocrats/aristoocrats, legislation/legistion, and artisan/art-i-sane), - Spelling rules for addingprefixes/suffixes

to words (inhospitable/hospitable, elude, eluded) - Sound-symbol (reading domain/domin, cautioned/continued, several/serial). Recommendations for Sarah Cloze passages to help monitor for meaning when reading Explicitly teach common rules for syllabication http://www.sjusd.org/simonds/docs/16_s yllable_rules.cwk_(WP)_.pdf Explicitly teach common root words, prefixes, and suffixes Teaching Reading Sourcebook: For Kindergarten Through Eighth Grade by Bill Honig, Linda Diamond, and Linda Gutlohn. http://teacher.scholastic.com/reading/be stpractices/vocabulary/pdf/prefixes_suffi xes.pdf Testing Walker by Mary Stewart

Rate Walker read quickly and with confidence, but paid little attention to punctuation. Walker made 0 2 errors in the easiest stories, through Story 6. He made 5 or less errors in stories 7 and 8. His errors greatly increased in stories 9 and up. 100% of Walkers misread word errors were visually similar to the printed text. 44% of Walkers miscues demonstrated function similarity to words from the stories (ex: impending/imminent, possible/possibly, this/the, etc.) Walkers reading rate remained consistent throughout testing and never dropped lower than a score of 2. Recommendations for Walker Resources Explicit instruction on where accent goes

http://library.neuhaus.org/lessonets/developing-a wareness-accent Walker currently attends school in a third grade general education classroom. It is recommended that Walker stay in his current placement as his scores do not indicate a need for additional intervention at this Reading fluency instruction with a focus on slowing rate Guided Oral Reading http://www.readingrockets.org/article/what-guide d-oral-reading Practice following punctuation correct pausing, etc. http://www.swsc.org/cms/lib04/MN01000693/Cent

ricity/Domain/91/EI_Phrasing_and_Commas.pdf Reading self-correction instruction https://readingrecovery.org/images/pdfs/Conferen Takeaways The GORT-5 was easy and quick to use. The GORT-5 had very simple and basic instructions that were easy to follow and uncomplicated. We were a little bit confused by the role of the comprehension questions. (How the comprehension affects the score, because it wasnt factored into ceilings and basals) The test had the feel of a DRA test, but the marking instructions were different. This confused us. The percentile ranks seemed disproportionate in some ways. For example, WM scored in the 75th percentile in reading accuracy (scoring better than or equal to 75% of his peers in the norm group), but was described as Average. Sarah scored in the 37th percentile rank in accuracy which

was also described as average. The GORT-5 was an easy tool, but we prefer others (ex: DIBELS or DRA). References J.L. Wiederholt & B. R. Bryant. (2012). Gray Oral Reading Tests Fifth Edition (GORT-5). Austin, TX: Pro-Ed.
