My 6 year old son took the DORA this afternoon. His reading comprehension was only mid kindergarten. Yikes! I've taught him to look back in the text to answer questions, but there's no looking back on the DORA. His reading level is mid 2nd grade on K5 Learning but that allows look backs. On the DORA he scored well on phonics (4th grade), word recognition (3rd) and oral vocabulary (high 2nd). Overall his lexile came out 1.4 with a stretch to 2.3.
I'm figuring we can just focus on comprehension now and read, read, read. I'm going to work on remembering what he read without looking back.
