Description

The Reading Observation Scale (ROS) is 25-item, norm-referenced rating scale that can be used to assess students' daily classroom reading behaviors. It consists of statements that relate to specific reading behaviors readily seen in instructional settings (e.g., ¨enjoys reading, retells read material correctly"); each statement is rated (by teachers or other educational professionals) on a 5-point scale. The ROS is normed on a nationally stratified sample of 1,338 students in 15 states and has proven reliability and validity (including evidence of sensitivity and specificity). The ROS can be used to:

  • support a referral,
  • expand the scope of a comprehensive reading evaluation,
  • compare teachers' ratings with test results,
  • help plan interventions, and
  • monitor the effectiveness of nterventions

    Administration and Scoring

    Usually, only 5 to 10 minutes are required to rate a student's observed reading behaviors. The total score is reported as standard scores and percentile ranks.
