Documentation and analysis of a running record lets us see where a child's ability to decode unfamiliar words, breaks down.
When we analyze the errors a child makes while reading, we can determine exactly what a child does when he or she encounters an unfamiliar word. Does the child use visual clues to try to figure out what the word is? Does he or she think about the structure of the phrase or sentence and consider how the word might sound in the context of the story?
Or does the child think about meaning and substitute a word that makes sense in place of the difficult word. This error anaylsis then helps us formulate an instructional plan designed to grow the reader so that she or he can read books of increasing complexity. The conversation that we have with the child following the administration of the Running Records provides information that tells us how well the child has understood what he or she has just read.
Taking meaning from the text is always our number one goal for the reader. Running records open the window into a child's comprehension of a text, and again help us plan for "next step" reading instruction.

Please remember that the purpose of any Reading interest survey is to help you get to know the child so that you can help him or her find books that match his or her passions.
K-2 teachers may want to obtain interest information by engagining in a conversation with a child, while upper elementary teachers may have children write their responses to the questions.
