Transform your teaching of whole texts with Read in to Writing!
Diagnostic Reading Analysis (DRA) enables the testing of listening and reading comprehension and a single word reading for less-able readers.
Developed in partnership with the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, this one-to-one standardised test helps to inform teaching and provide reading ages and measures for access arrangements including:
An initial listening comprehension passage helps to decide the starting point for each pupil. The pupil then goes on to read aloud and answer questions on three passages – fiction and non-fiction – pitched at just below, at and just above their reading level.
The brand-new edition has been fully re-standardised and includes four new upper-level passages (fiction and non-fiction), engaging reading texts matched to the 2014 curriculum and brand-new full colour illustrations.
DRA gives an excellent insight into both comprehension and accuracy.
DRA showed us where children were able to read the text but not able to retrieve answers from the text despite having it in front of them.
It helped identify those children whose comprehension skills did not match their reading skills.
