DORA - Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment

Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment (DORA) by Let’s Go Learn

Product Details

Let’s Go Learn’s DORA assessment series diagnostically evaluates each student’s reading abilities while providing the highest level of reliability and accuracy. By employing revolutionary adaptive logic and focusing on diagnostic test design, Let’s Go Learn’s assessments maximize the information obtained about each student while minimizing test-taking time and anxiety. The granular data captured by each assessment offers classroom teachers a comprehensive and actionable picture of each student.

The DORA series expands reading into multiple sub-tests.  Reading ability is made up of many skills: comprehension strategies, vocabulary, sight-word recognition, phonics, spelling, phonemic awareness, and more.  Within each of these areas, a specific level can be found that identifies the ideal starting point for each student.  These points, also known as a student’s zone of proximal development, should never be defined by a student’s grade level.  They are determined by what each student actually can and cannot do based on a set of test items, not on single questions.  Single-question adaptive logic is the hallmark of screeners and summative tests’ analysis of students.  They make recommendations based on the data of the many, not the actual data of the one.
