Reading Diagnostic Assessments
The most accurate and prescriptive reading assessments within an online platform.
Granular and actionable assessment data for foundational reading skills
Let’s Go Learn’s DORA assessment series diagnostically evaluates each student’s reading abilities while providing the highest level of reliability and accuracy. By employing revolutionary adaptive logic and focusing on diagnostic test design, Let’s Go Learn’s assessments maximize the information obtained about each student while minimizing test-taking time and anxiety. The granular data captured by each assessment offers classroom teachers a comprehensive and actionable picture of each student.
Ensuring that reading assessments are as expansive as each child or student
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.
Instant accurate reports based on evidence, standards, and solid data
Let’s Go Learn’s web-based platform offers instant reporting for a teacher to share with an administrator, parent, or student. Reports are comprehensible to all users, since they use easy-to-understand grade-level scores and simple narratives.
Other reports are designed for the special education teacher who needs to write student IEPs faster and with greater accuracy. In addition, DORA can find present levels and determine weekly, monthly, or quarterly student language-art goals. When used with formative assessments, progress monitoring becomes automatic. All data rolls up into a unified, vertically scaled grade-level score dataset.
Reports can be created for small-group instruction for classroom teachers or for school-based reports to inform principals and department leaders. Evidence-based teaching has never been easier with the dynamic range of reports for all stakeholders.
