4th Grade Student Proficiency Levels for Reading


The following resources were created by the 2017 Oklahoma Framework Writers. The purpose of this resource is to provide descriptions of student skill levels for each objective. These descriptors are guidance for classroom teachers to identify levels of student understanding. This understanding allows teachers to build upon the students current ability and work towards a mastery of grade-level skills. Here you will also find instructional guidance resources for students at the developing, approaching, and understanding level. These resources can be used as a springboard for instructional practices.
