Question Detail

Our district is looking for short reading assessments to assess DRA or Fountas & Pinnell guided reading levels. We are aware of the ones used by Teacher's College, but can anyone recommend any other tools of this kind? Thank you.

      I using a Slossen Oral Reading Assessment at the beginning of the school year along with a Basic Reading Inventory (BRI) to determine student's reading level. Then I use the BRI throughout the year to monitor progress.

        We use the F & P Benchmark assessment boxes at my school. They are easy to use, quick and engaging for the kids.

          We use Ames web testing to locate students who need academic support. It is an oral reading test.
