Guess I'm not paying for the DORA for Zave next year.
We take the DORA (Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment) each year. This is Levi's first year and he did alright after I got him used to taking his darn time. The Sight words test, he bombed. He just wanted to fly through so he could do his "real work" and then go play. After he slowed down, he is a grade level or 2 above in everything. LOL
Enter the Zave-man (For the record he is 8 and at the end of 3rd grade). What the heck? He scored the maximum. On. Everything. (Except spelling. He's *only* on grade level in spelling.) Word recognition? 12th grade. Oral Vocabulary? 12th grade. Reading Comprehension? 12th grade. Now the Phonics only goes to grade 4.83 and the High Frequency words only goes to grade 3.83, but he got the max on both of those.
So are there any other tests? What do you do to make sure the kids are at level?
