ORAL READING
Step 1: Preparatory Activities
1. Secure copies of forms for each pupil in
your class.
Phil-IRI Form 1-Grade Level Passage
Rating Sheet
Phil-IRI Form 2-Individual Summary
Record
2. Ensure that you have a copy of the
graded passage for your grade level
(pupils copy) and the Phil-IRI Form 3-
Class Reading Profile

3. Familiarize yourself with the test materials
and the accompanying forms.

4. Mount the pupils copy of the grade level
passage on cardboard for ease of
administration. Ensure that the testing area
is well-ventilated, well-lighted and free from
distractions.
Step 2: Administering the Grade Level
Passage
1. Give the pupil the passage for his grade
level . Read the PROMPT. The prompt is
necessary to activate the pupils prior
knowledge about the passage. It will also
motivate the pupil to be interested in the
passage which will put him at ease
during reading.

2. Ask the pupil to read the passage of his
grade level orally. if the pupil hesitates and
looks at you for assurance, encourage him
to go on.

3. As the pupil reads, mark all errors on the
pupils individual Phil-IRI Form 1-Grade
Level Passage Rating Sheet. Be guided in
marking this sheet by Word Recognition
Error Marking System




4. Allow the pupil to read the passage
silently for 2 minutes. Get the passage
from the pupil and ask the accompanying
question.

5. If the pupil cannot decode/read, mark the
pupil as non-reader in his individual
summary record. In such a case, read the
passage to him before asking the
accompanying question.


This will determine the capacity level of
the pupil to understand the passage read
to him. The knowledge of the capacity
level of the pupil is additional information
to the teacher regarding the true ability of
his pupil who is a non-reader.
6. Record the capacity level of the pupil by
marking appropriately his Individual
Summary Record. Compute for his
percentage score and write capacity level
in the reading level column.
Step 3: Recording Individual and
Class Reading Profile
A. Individual Summary Record
1. Each pupil has an individual summary
record which has two parts
A. Word Recognition
B. Comprehension

2. In recording pupils responses in word
recognition, write down all pupils miscues
in his Phil-IRI Form 2-Individual Summary
Record. If the miscues changed the
meaning of the sentence, mark them
properly under the column labeled Major
Miscues. If the pupil corrects his own
errors, mark them properly under the
column labeled Self-Corrected.
3. Compute the level of the pupil in word
recognition using the ff. formula:

(WR): No. of major miscue (M) X 100=% of M
No. of words in the passage (N)

%correct = 100% - % of M
4. Identify the pupils word recognition level by
referring to Table 1
5. Record pupils responses to the
comprehension question in PhilIRI Form 2-
Individual Summary Record
(Comprehension)
6. Compute the pupils comprehension level
using the ff. formula:
(C): No. of correct answers x 100 = % of CR
No. of questions
7. Identify the comprehension level of the
pupils. Refer to Table 1*
8. Identify the overall reading ability of the
pupil in word recognition and in
comprehension using the Table*

9. Enter each pupils data under the
appropriate category in Form 2. the
responses of the pupil in the pretest shall
be entered under the pretest column

B. Class Reading Profile
1. Using the data in the Phil-IRI Form 2-
Individual Summary Record, transfer
each pupils performance in the Phil-
IRI Form 3-Class Reading Profile.
Enter the names of the pupils in column 1

2. For the pretest, check the pretest column
corresponding to the pupils reading level
(Column 2-reading level)

3. If the pupil is a non-reader, check the
appropriate Column in column 3.
4. Do the same procedure in the posttest.
When the posttest shall have been conducted
at the end of the school year, determine
whether each pupil has improved or
regressed under Remarks in column 4.
5. Submit a copy of the Class Reading Profile
to the principal.
6. Study your class profile and plan the
intervention that will address the needs of
your pupils.

the time after they read the passage

no. of questions
= % of CR
7. Identify the comprehension level of the pupil.
Table 1
8. Identify the reading level of the pupil in
reading speed and comprehension using
Table 2.*

When the posttest shall have been
conducted at the end of the school year,
determine whether each pupil has improved
or regressed under Remarks in column 5.

NOTE: In case the pupil was unable to take
either the pretest or the posttest, do not
include his results in the class reading
profile. Instead, use the information
gathered to improve reading capabilities.
Good Luck
