Let’s Go Learn’s age-appropriate assessment interfaces engage readers and make testing more fun and relevant. The platform’s adaptive technology intelligently navigates across multiple areas within reading to provide a broad comprehensive look for each teacher to direct personalized instruction or for automated online intervention.
Rather than summarize developing readers into single scores, the DORA series expands reading into multiple sub-tests. Reading ability doesn’t reduce to a single score, as many screening tools and benchmark tests assume. Rather, it is made up of many skills: comprehension strategies, vocabulary, sight-word recognition, phonics, spelling, phonemic awareness, and more. Within each of these areas, a specific level can be found that identifies the ideal starting point for each student. These points, also known as a student’s zone of proximal development, should never be defined by a student’s grade level. They are determined by what each student actually can and cannot do based on a set of test items, not on single questions. Single-question adaptive logic is the hallmark of screeners and summative tests’ analysis of students. They make recommendations based on the data of the many, not the actual data of the one. Let’s Go Learn will never make this mistake when assessing your students.
