    What assessments of reading do you do in your classroom? We do DRA2, but usually those aren't completed until October. I'd like to give something a little faster so I can pull groups earlier. Do you have any other reading assessments you find helpful?

    Fountas and Pinnell, but that's a whole system that the school bought.

    We do Star Testing several times a year, the kids take AR tests several times a week, and I give informal reading assessments on a regular basis.

    Running record/miscue analysis...helps me get a handle on the level at which the kid is reading and plan instruction to individualize to each kid's needs.
