ICLA Standard III: Study Session 11

In preparation of the Idaho Comprehensive Literacy Assessment (ICLA) Standard III, I am creating a series of blog posts from my study notes and the study guide. The subjects are organized below in alphabetical order and I will be completing five subjects at a time. At the end of my preparation, there will be a total of 11 sessions which are found below. I am in hopes that I can provide assistance to others studying for the ICLA or similar literacy tests for pre-service teachers.
Today's Subjects

Variability
1. changeableness 2. the dispersion, spread, or scatter of scores or values in a distribution, usually about the mean (average).

Example Question:
 A single central value used to summarize a distribution of scores

Words Correct Per Minute (WCPM)
is one way to determine a student's reading fluency. Quick probes based on carefully selected passages can help teachers screen, diagnose, and monitor students' progress. Reading fluency is calculated by taking the total number of words read in one minute and subtracting the number of errors. Only count one error per word. This gives you the words correct per minute (wpm). The words correct per minute represent students' fluency levels (Calculating Reading Fluency).

Writing Process
the many aspects of the complex act of producing a written communication. Planning/Prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing.

Writing Workshop
an intensive seminar on how to write



In addition, I have created a Quizlet set of the vocabulary words found here. On Quizlet, I am very fond of playing the matching game where you can drag corresponding items (term to definition) onto each other to make them disappear. I also like to create a test on Quizlet with multiple choice, true or false, and matching to assess my knowledge of all the vocabulary words.

Good Luck!
