Product Details

The DRA3 combines decades of teacher input with the latest research to validate the premier reading assessment of individual student reading behaviors in the classroom.

Benefits

DRA3 offers:

  • More than 100 fiction and nonfiction books to provide your students ample choices
  • New word list screener to help estimate the best starting levels for younger students or new students entering a school or district
  • Redesigned Teacher Observation Guides (record forms) to facilitate easier recording and efficient assigning of scores
  • Reorganized Teacher Guides to ensure important administration procedures, decision points, and other information are all easier to find, understand, and implement with fidelity
  • Updated comprehension scoring criteria
  • Reading Engagement as an optional component of Benchmark Assessment

With DRA3, teachers can:

  • Determine each student's independent or instructional reading level with an evaluation of three components of reading: reading engagement, oral reading fluency, and comprehension.
  • Quickly determine students' instructional needs to create a plan documenting what each student needs to learn next with the Focus for Instruction. Once the assessment is complete, teachers can use this information to differentiate instruction and create instructional groups.
  • As appropriate, a teacher can obtain more in-depth information for an individual student with DRA Word Analysis. This diagnostic assessment provides educators with a systematic means to observe how struggling and emerging readers attend to and work with various components of spoken and written words.
