Welcome to assessment that drives instruction! EDL2 is a Spanish Reading Assessment for dual language, bilingual, and immersion classrooms that helps Spanish-speaking students become independent successful readers with tools to assess reading engagement, fluency, and comprehension. EDL2 is the Spanish equivalent of DRA2.

Observe and Assess Student Performance

With EDL2, it’s easy to identify a student’s independent reading level and document progress over time. With this information at hand, educators can provide informed instruction and present developmentally appropriate materials.

Provide Powerful Instruction

Educators using EDL2 have an abundance of resources at their disposal, making it possible to focus on instructional requirements and tailor teaching based on the specific needs of the students in a particular classroom.

Educators also will be able to recognize reciprocity between reading and writing and provide a common literacy language across schools or districts.

Analyze Data

With easy-to-use EDL2 materials, educators can identify critical points of intervention and compare student progress with benchmark expectations. They can also allocate instructional materials and personnel resources more effectively and group students based on need.
