    Anyone use DRA 2? I am suppose to level my students using this assessment, but I don't have a whole lot of time and my SLOs are due at the end of this month. Any ideas? Is there another assessment I could use and then convert the score to DRA?

    Once you've done one, you'll breeze through them. What reading level range are you working with?

    All over the place, to be honest.

    At our school, we use DRA 2 as a guide. I was new to it too this year and once I administered a few, it was easy peasy and very insightful. It really opened my eyes to where the students where and at what level to start instruction. I understand the lack of time to test...it's so frustrating!!! I feel like all we do is test, test and test some more. I honestly make one day a week a "chill" day to get my testing done. As long as the kids are learning something and keeping busy, I'm okay with it!

    Our district finally dropped the DRA since the reliability was so low that we couldn't use it for placement or planning instruction. To add to those problems, each test took 45 to 75 minutes to administer. By the time each student took the test, many hours of instructional time was lost. I hope your school can find a quick test for the general student population.
