Collins Big Cat free APP resources bring all the information you need
for reading assessment together, saving you time and money.
Collect evidence & Make judgements
Use our Running Record sheets to gather evidence and analyse children’s average rate of miscue when reading. Collins Big Cat includes two Running Record sheets to monitor progression effectively.
Our Assessment Examples demonstrate answers at two different levels, helping you to fully understand where a child is and where they need to be to succeed. Use the ‘Ideas for guided reading’ page in the back of the book alongside the Assessment Examples sheet to support your judgements.
Use the evidence you have gathered from the running record sheet and the judgements made with the help of the Assessment Examples to determine skills that need practice. The Matching Chart will allow you to easily identify the next appropriate book by NC level, learning objective or Assessment Focus.
Collins Big Cat Assessment and Support Guides offer practical planning and teaching support, with book-by-book information and photocopiable activity sheets to help practice and extend literacy objectives and support for writing.
