Assess your less able readers with a brand-new one-to-one standardised test

Trialled with over 1,000 pupils across the country, Diagnostic Reading Analysis (DRA) is an oral, one-to-one standardised test to accurately assess your less able readers.

All of the texts in this edition support the 2014 National Curriculum, and four new upper-level reading passages have been added to extend the test ceiling.

What do schools use DRA for?

  • To provide standardised measures of a pupil's reading ability.

  • To measure progress by re-testing with the parallel forms following an intervention programme.

  • To help create a pen portrait for pupils who may need special arrangements, such as additional time in National Tests.
