Quizzing from home guidance for parents/carers and pupils.
Renaissance don’t usually encourage quizzing at home as it can affect test fidelity and result in data being distorted. There is also a risk of pupils returning to school with obscure reading ages or misleading ZPD ranges due to improper quiz practice. However, due to these exceptional circumstances, pupils will be allowed to quiz at home for a limited period.
Please ensure that all books pupils read are:
AR quizzed – you can use the Accelerated Reader Bookfinder HERE (ARBookfinder.co.uk) website to search for a book and see if a quiz is available.
Appropriate for the pupil’s level of ability (within their ZPD).
We advise that pupils complete the quizzes unaided. If parents/carers wish to support their child, they can do so in the following ways:
Discuss the book with your child as the book is being read
Ask your child to read the questions aloud
Re-word questions for your child if necessary
Ask your child which answers are not correct
Daily reading is a crucial factor in developing every pupil’s reading age.
PLEASE ENSURE ALL BOOKS ARE RETURNED TO KEEP OUR LIBRARY WELL RESOURCED.
Thank you for your continued support
