As a new SENCO to a school allowed to change anything we are about to start using the new RAPID reading intervention in our school which I am quite excited about. But before I start I want to have a way of measuring progress. At the moment we are just switching over to APP Style assessments (and truth be known national curriculum levelling as well - independent school and it was a bit behind) and so I am not sure if thiswil be the best way to measure progress at the moment while teachers are getting to grips with it. I have considered Salford or Holborn but am not convinced of the usefulness of such reading ages - although it would show clear progress in decoding ability. Anyone got any opinions? I am goign to to put this in Emglish as well.
