Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)
The DRA provides a method for assessing and documenting primary students' development as readers over time within a literature-based instructional reading program. Assessments are conducted during one-on-one reading conferences as children read specially selected assessment texts.
Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI)
The SRI is a computer-adaptive assessment instrument for grades 1-12 that allows educators to assess reading comprehension. The SRI test self-adjusts in response to the student's reading ability. Adaptive testing shortens test-taking time and increases testing accurary.
The STAMP (Standards Measurement of Proficiency) assessment is administered to approximately 4900 Course Level II & IV students of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish each spring. Student proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing is measured by the assessment. STAMP is a Web-based assessment that is based on national proficiency guidelines.
