Dean Richards

2 Nuts and bolts The purpose of the DRA to diagnose student reading issues and guiding instruction in the classroom You need to have a good idea of the instructional level of the student to start the DRA You need to read the text before you can score the assessment Each student takes about 10 minutes with you. Each student takes about minutes to complete the DRA Students with difficulty in writing have a hard time with the DRA Each DRA takes 5-10 minutes to assess (to start)

3 Each grade level has 2 non-fiction selections

4 Each grade level has 2 fiction selections

5 Teacher materials Teacher selected or student selected
3 parts to the assessment Reading Engagement Oral Reading Fluency Comprehension Skills/Strategies Total score gives grade level of instructional text

7 Teacher materials T: = teacher prompt
Student reads this aloud with teacher recording errors and doing a miscue analysis Do not correct errors or give words that are unknown Time students
