Utilizes fiction and non-fiction. Grades 1-3 are assessed in September and May. Kindergarten students are assessed in January. Benchmark levels range from 1-38 and reflect growth in literacy skills. DRA2 Level Skills Addressed Levels A-2 Concepts About Print (CAP), Tracking/Directional Rules , Print conveys the message,

However, 24% of second-graders are scoring just below the benchmark proficiency level. DRA-2 Questions to Consider How can the DRA-2 shape instructional strategies, particularly for students just below benchmark? For example, teachers are encouraged to use Running Records during Small Group Instruction between assessment periods. Evaluate staffing strategies: Are teachers the appropriate fit for the grade level? How are schools using evaluation data to coach 1st and 2nd grade teachers? 20 SRI Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) Overview Administered as a computer-adaptive assessment to grades 3-8. Designed to measure reading comprehension. Students select reading genres of interest and answer questions based on literature passages. Students receive personalized reading recommendations, as well as a reading level (Lexile score). 22 SRI: Students testing proficient or above range from 22% in 3rd grade to 40% in 8th grade. 100%

Students performing at the Basic level remain relatively consistent, ranging from 34% to 38% SRI Questions to Consider What can SRI scores tell school leaders when considered alongside other interim assessments, such as Achievement Network? For example, student proficiency on different text types. 24
