The Diagnostic Reading Analysis is an oral reading test designed specifically for the less able reader between the ages of 7 to 16 years. The test is carefully structured, with an initial listening comprehension passage helping to verify the starting point for each pupil. The pupil then reads and answers questions on three graded passages - two fiction and one non-fiction - pitched at appropriate levels of difficulty. The purpose-written reading texts utilise vocabulary, and content and contexts with which pupils can readily engage; they are supported with full-colour illustrations throughout.
Each assessment takes up to 15 minutes. Pupils do not have to take the whole test: the user-friendly Pupil Record points you to the next appropriate reading passage. The Pupil Record also shows at a glance which answers to the comprehension questions - literal and inferential - can be scored correctly. Two parallel forms A and B allow for re-testing, to assess progress, while a photocopiable Diagnostic Checklist helps to identify patterns of reading performance and the cues a pupil uses when reading.
The Diagnostic Reading Analysis provides standardised measures of reading accuracy (as standardised scores and reading ages), fluency/reading rate and reading comprehension. Additionally, this second edition provides a standardised measure of comprehension processing speed, making the DRA ideal for access arrangements assessment.
Specimen Set includes: Manual, Reading Booklet and one sample copy of each pupil record form A and B. Please be advised that orders of Diagnostic Reading Analysis are restricted to schools/institutions only, we are unable to fulfil orders with a private address.
