Conducting a Hot Timing

Account Administrators, School Coordinators, Teachers, and Read Live Assistants can conduct hot timings for any students, whether or not they are the students' lead teachers.

To conduct a hot timing:

  1. On the Pass/More Practice or Pass/Wordtastic step, click the yellow Conduct Pass Activities button in the page header.
  2. In the Teacher Login, enter your user ID and password and click Log in.
  3. On the Pass/Hot Timing step, ask the student to click Start Timing
    If the student has saved a recording and is not available for a live timing, click Score Recording instead to conduct a timing based on the recording.
    You can also click Start Live Timing to do a live timing for the student, even if they have saved a recording.
  4. As the student reads, listen, and count the number of errors.
    This step is similar for a student recording. While the recording plays, listen and count the student's errors.
  5. The timing ends in one of these ways:
    • If the bell sounds, click the last word the student read before the timer expired.
    • If the student finishes the story before the bell sounds, click Finished.
  6. Enter the number of words the student missed. 
  7. Rate the student's expression.
  8. Click Next to continue.
  9. On the Pass/Hot Timing Graph page, view the student's cold- and hot-timing results.
  10. Click Next to continue.
