Hi Ruben,

I currently teach first and second grade,and have experience with doing running records. What I typically do is download a copy of the passage I will be giving the student on to my braille note touch. I assign a number to each of the different types of errors a student can make, and will put parentheses around the word or phrase along with the number indicating the error. I  typically don’t have any difficulty keeping up with marking errors while the student is reading using this system, but recording could definitely be an option. I also remember in college when I was doing this for the first time, looking up a YouTube video of this being done to practice my numbering system, so I would have it down when I worked with the student for the first time. Because my professor had practiced with the other college students using the typical coding system, I figured out my system later and was unable to practice at the time my peers were practicing. I hope you find a system that works for you.

I will have to do this next week with a second or third grade student for the first time and am not sure how I will mark their errors and self-correcting behaviors. This will take place over Zoom if that makes a difference. The only thing I can think to do is to record the student while they read and complete the running record later, but I’m not sure that will be allowed.
