CHECKOUT INSTRUCTIONS Checkouts are 1 minute timed oral tests that are done only on the test portion of the sheet for each level. The “checker” says, “Get ready, go.” and starts stopwatch. The checker does not interrupt the student being tested, but makes a mark for each error. THE STUDENTS SAY ONLY THE ANSWERS ON THE TIMED TEST CHECKOUTS. After the 1 minute period the checker says, “Stop.” The checker then counts the number of facts answered correctly. The checker tells the student this number which is then entered onto the Student Progress Chart. If a student answered at least 28 of the facts correctly on the timed test, he/she advances to the next level. Levels are indicated by coloring in those levels that have been successfully completed. Students are given a note of recognition at the completion of each level.
