Developmental Reading Assessment®, 2nd Edition PLUS (DRA2+)


Proven Reading Assessment

The Developmental Reading Assessment®, Second Edition, PLUS (DRA2+) is a formative reading assessment in which teachers are able to systemically observe, record, and evaluate changes in student reading performance.

DRA2+ is a proven, criterion-referenced assessment and includes recommendations for scaffolded support to increase student reading proficiency. DRA2+ has undergone rigorous field-testing and is supported by sound validity and reliability analyses.

*A student's DRA2 level (independent reading level) reflects the student's oral reading fluency (95% accuracy) and comprehension (90%) at independent performance levels.
