Reading Placement?

I'm curious of what Im actually looking for. My 2nd grader was going to be held back this year (shes behind in reading, and handwritting.) They have her going to a mandatory reading camp for summer 4 days a week, 1/2 days, for June and July. I plan on after that, offically taking her out of public school. But I'm wanting to work with her with Explore the Code books, and just more reading over the summer and throughout the following grade year.

My question, is I would like to see how progress is made, to see if and when Im able to get her back on track to the "3rd grade level" by the end of the year. Is there any placement test I can give her, or know how I can know I'm doing my "job" I guess? Also is there a reading list by grade level? I googled and found a few "favorites of 2nd grade, etc" and added them... I'll add my Snote from my tablet. Hailey is my 2nd grader, and Lily is my Kindie (but she is reading at a 1st - almost 2nd grade level.)

I'm really sorry for all the homeschooling questions, you ladies have helped me ALOT and I appreciate it!!

This site is really neat. It gives you a list of books according to grade levels. You can register for free and the kids can do a quiz about the book they read and they get points.  I run a story hour at the local library and I've started a book club for kids. They love seeing how many quizzes they can take and then they get prizes when they reach a certain number of points.

I know I have a site that you can print out a reading test. But I think it's for higher grades. I'll check and if I find it I'll post it.

 kry if no one had questions we'd  be out of a group! thats what all us hs moms are here for to help each other

you'll be able to tell if your dd is improving on her reading by having her read to you,  practise practise practise!! when you bring her home and start hsing her, you'll see an improvement, one on one teaching is the best! taking turns reading with each other helps so much, makes a big difference. and be sure to keep reading to the kids daily.

reading placement tests- ive not used these so dont know how they work!

Sonlight reading: puts her on "Reading 2 Readers" curriculum.

But I also had this link: http://homeschooling.gomilpitas.com/articles/060899.htm#.Uaj7hpxc62o

And she scored a "33" which would mean 3.3. Sigh sorta WAY different levels!

I found a detailed online test here:http://www.mindsprinting.com/mindsprinting/assessment_tests/reports/re/index.aspx?at_id=88216

and here was her results:

Hailey is currently in 2nd grade at school

This is the grade provided to us when Hailey signed up for the Assessment Test.

Hailey is performing at the 2nd grade level. She is reading at her grade level and she is ready for an advanced program to start improving her reading skills.

So I tested this detailed test on my advance Kindie:

Lily is currently in kindergarten at school

This is the grade provided to us when Lily signed up for the Assessment Test.

Lily is reading at the 2nd grade level. She is reading ahead of her grade level and she is ready for an advanced program to further improve her reading skills.

   so is Hailey not as bad off as I thought? Thoughts? Public school has her needing to repeat 2nd (of course we are homeschooling starting in Aug.) But what do you think?

According to all those tests Hailey seems to be doing fine in reading.  I am not sure why they wanted to hold her back if she is scoring so well on those tests.  Was it strictly reading they were worried about?  Or was it grammar and writing as well?
