The High-Frequency Words Assessments help measure a studentís ability to recognize and read high-frequency
words, or sight words. Assessments that target top high-frequency words are available in printable and
projectable formats and as eAssessments. Assign an additional set of eAssessments to evaluate students
on more than 220 of the most common words in the English language, compiled using several popular
word lists, including Dolch and Fry.
Since high-frequency, or sight, words are essential to fluent reading, and since many are not
decodable, repeated exposure and memorization are crucial for students to be able to read
quickly and fluently.
Recorded assessments provide a way for you to listen to students reading aloud at a time that
is convenient for you. Scoring the assessment with our easy-to-use tool helps you to determine
which high-frequency words require the focus of your instruction.
Assign an Assessment
using the Kids A-Z Student Management area. The High-Frequency Words
Assessments will present from the high-frequency words used in a set of High-Frequency Words
Books. The Most Common Words Assessments will present from 15-27 high-frequency words at a
time from the Learning A-Z word list. Use the "i" to see which words are in each assessment
when you assign one.
Use the printable or projectable versions of the High-Frequency Word Assessments for
additional practice. Have the student read the words in each column and place a check mark next
to those read incorrectly. Track student progress using the High-Frequency Words Graph, and
provide additional practice before reassessing with the Flashcards.
On Kids A-Z, students record themselves reading the high-frequency words presented in random
order one at a time (for three seconds or more depending on whether you choose to set a timer)
and submit the recording to your
Kids A-Z In Basket
Our easy-to-use online tool allows you to score the number of words a student reads correctly
and automatically calculates the student's words per minute and words correct per minute to
determine an accuracy percentage.
Use the Notes to Self field to keep track of which words individual students missed. Notes that
you make in this field show up in
in Kids A-Z.
