DRA Reading Assessments will begin on Monday, August 31st. These individual screenings will be completed within the next two weeks. The Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) is an individually administered assessment of a child’s reading capabilities. It is a tool to be used by instructors to identify a students reading level, accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. Once levels are identified, an instructor can use this information for instructional planning purposes. It will also help our librarian guide each child to choose books on their appropriate reading level for better practice.
