Grades K-2 Screening Tasks
19
Screening Tasks
• Screening tasks are administered 1-on-1 and fall into 3 types:
1.
2.
Student and Teacher Task: Both the assessor and
student see the screen, but only the teacher uses the
mouse (e.g. LS)
or
Student Task: Both see the screen, but the student
uses the mouse (e.g. FD)
20
3.
Teacher Task: Only the assessor sees
the screen and uses the mouse (e.g.
PA)
Screening Tasks
• All directions, practice items, and items delivered via
audio
• Each task computer-adaptive
– Reduces administration time and frustration by only
administering items targeted to individual student’s ability level
– Total administration time for the screening will be
approximately 30 minutes, depending on grade level
• Screening can be administered over several sessions if
needed
– If a task is started, ensure that task is completed before ending
the session
21
Screen Elements: Submit Button
1. For Letter Sounds and Word Reading, the teacher will mark
correct/incorrect responses by clicking the arrow at bottom
right-hand corner of the screen
–
–
To indicate a correct response, the teacher will click the top half of
the arrow
To indicate an incorrect response, the teacher will click the bottom
half of the arrow
2. Clicking a second time on the same part of the arrow will
confirm/submit the response and advance to the next item
–
–
To change the response, click the opposite side of the area
Click again to confirm the response
22
Screen Elements: Submit Button
• For all tasks other than Letter Sounds and Word Reading, it does
not matter where the arrow is clicked. Since the computer records
the response, either based on the tester’s input (i.e. Phonological
Awareness) or the student’s input (Following Directions, Vocabulary
Pairs, Sentence Comprehension, etc.), the split arrow functionality
is not activated.
– The arrow looks the same, so that students are minimally aware of the tasks when
their performance is being scored in front of them by the teacher.
• Answers for these tasks are submitted after
only one click.
• There is no back button. Ensure that the student’s
final answer is chosen before clicking the arrow.
23
Screen Elements: Repeat Button
• To repeat, click on the replay button in the
lower left hand corner
• Type the word code PLAY (or play) into the replay prompt box
• Audio for each item may only be repeated once.
– If the student asks for the audio to be repeated again, ask them to try
and give their best answer and then move on.
24
Screen Elements: Reset Button
• For some tasks, students may want to change
their answer before submitting (e.g. Following
Directions or Vocabulary Pairs)
• To reset the page to the original screen, the
students can click on the x button in the lower
left hand corner and it will reset the screen

Readiness Screener (FLKRS)
• In compliance with Section 1002.69, F.S.
– All kindergarten students in each public school must be
screened
– Each child who was enrolled in the VPK education program
during the previous school year must be submitted for the
statewide kindergarten screening (FLKRS), regardless of
whether the child is admitted to Kindergarten in a public or
non-public school
• Consists of two parts:
– the Work Sampling System™ (WSS™)
– the screening portion of the Florida Assessments for
Instruction in Reading (FAIR-FS)

students to pronounce the word without a part
of the word (e.g., backpack without saying
back) or the initial sound of a word (e.g., cat
without /k/)
73
Phonological Deletion
Phonological Deletion Initial (Grades 1 and 2)
• Examines the student’s ability to manipulate word
sounds (prerequisite for the Word Building tasks)
• A recorded voice will say a word aloud and ask
students to pronounce the word without the initial
sound (e.g., cat without /k/)
Phonological Deletion Final (Grades 1 and 2)
• Task is the same as Phoneme Deletion Initial except
students are asked to pronounce the word without the
final sound (e.g., kneel without /l/)
74
Phonological Blending
(Grade 1)
• Student listens to recorded segmented word
(e.g., cup-cake; /d/-og)
• Student blends parts to form the word
• Teacher clicks to indicate if student’s response
is correct/incorrect
75
Letter Sound Connection
Letter Sound Connection: Initial (Grade K)
• Measures student’s ability to identify initial phonemes
and graphemes in words.
• A recorded voice says a word. Student identifies the first
sound of the word, and then points to the correct letter.
Letter Sound Connection: Final (Grade K)
• Measures student’s ability to identify final phonemes and
graphemes in words.
• Task is the same as the Letter Sound Connection Initial
task, but targets the last sound of a word instead of the
first sound.
76
Letter Sound Connections:
(Grade K only)
Part one Audio (no picture): “What is the first sound in ‘pan?’”
Part two Audio (this screen): “Point to the letter that makes the /p/ sound?”
77
Word Building
Word Building: Initial Consonants (Grade K)
• The computer will display an array of letters across the top of the
screen and a word at the bottom of the screen (e.g., hop). The
student will make a new word pronounced by the computer (e.g.,
top).
Word Building: Final Consonants (Grade K)
• The student will manipulate the final sound in a word (e.g., top
changed to tot).
Word Building: Medial Vowels (Grade K)
• The student will manipulate the medial/middle sound in a word
(e.g., top changed to tap).
78
Word Building
Word Building: CVC/CVCe (Grades 1-2)
• Assesses students’ understanding of long and short vowels
• Student starts with a word with a short vowel (e.g., nap)
and is asked to make a word with a long vowel sound (e.g.,
nape)
• Students may also be asked to transform a word with a long
vowel into a word with a short vowel (e.g., nape to nap)
Word Building: Blends (Grades 1-2)
• Assesses students’ ability to manipulate letters and sounds
in words that are part of a consonant blend (e.g., make the
word spit into split)
79
Word Building
Audio: “The word is ‘cat.’ Make the word ‘hat.’”
80
Multisyllabic Word Reading
(Grade 2)
• Evaluates the student’s ability to decode
words with various combinations of the six
syllable types
81
Grades K-2 Diagnostic Tasks
Summary
• Tasks are computer administered but
not computer adaptive
• Tasks based on grade level
• Tasks are administered in
developmental sequence
• 80% accuracy is needed to continue
• Tasks mastered in previous APs are not
administered at next AP

Scoring and Reports
Important note:
Scores from FAIR-FS were designed to facilitate
instructional decision making including problemsolving and data-based decision making.
FAIR-FS scores are not intended to be
the sole data point in determining
retention or special education
determination
88
Score Reports
• Detailed reports for teachers and parents
– Includes profile of student scores
• Graphs to show ability scores in relation to grade level
performance
• Screening tasks:
– Ability scores
– Percentile ranks
– Probability of Literacy Success (PLS)
• Diagnostic Tasks
– Percentage of items correct
– Mastery
89
90
Probability of Literacy Success (PLS)
• Score represents the likelihood that a student will
receive a passing score on the end-of-year outcome
measure (i.e., SAT-10, SESAT)
• PLS is based on an aggregate of Alphabetics and Oral
Language scores
PLS of .50 predicts that
student has 50/50 chance
of achieving the passing
score on the outcome
measure
91
Ability Scores
• Scores represent an estimate of ability in a specific skill
and reflects true change over time as ability increases or
decreases
– Covers a range of ability from Kindergarten to grade 2
– Scores range from 200 – 800
– Indicates degree of growth for each student
A student with an ability score of 500
demonstrates the level of reading
skill expected at the middle of first
grade
92
Percentile Ranks
• Score is used to rank one student’s performance in
relation to a particular group of other students
– Ranges from 1 – 99 (25th through 75th percentile
represents the expected scoring range)
– Based on a representative sample of Florida students
2nd grade student with a
percentile rank of 55
performed better than 55%
of other 2nd graders in
Florida

• Ability Score: If a student receives a score of
400 at AP1 and 520 at AP2, s/he
demonstrated growth in that skill
• Percentile Rank: A first grade student with a
percentile rank of 55 performed better than
55% of other first grade students in Florida.
95
Considerations for Growth
• Ability scores are on an equal interval scale whereas
percentile rank is not
• Percentile rank is relative to other students’
performance and PLS is relative to another assessment.
• Ability score does not involve a comparison
