DRA Review

Company: Pearson Learning
Assessment: Yes
Instruction: No
Grades: K-4
Subject: Reading
Delivery: Paper
The DRA is an individually administered, criterion-referenced informal reading assessment conducted one on one with students. It can be administered three to four times each year to all students in Grades K-3 and English Learners in Grade 4. Results are used to determine a studentxs instructional reading level, guide the teacher in planning the classroom instructional program, identify appropriate supports and interventions, and document progress over time. It requires detailed teacher training since the teachers must analyze student results. In practice, this may introduce higher variance (or errors) in the results. It centers on students reading passages and teachers making analysis on their ablities based on their errors during oral reading and afterwards when teachers ask students comprehension questions. The analysis by the teacher is critical in determining results.
