GRADING POLICY

DEVELOPMENTAL READING ASSESSMENT (DRA)

All children in our school have been given a Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) which lets us know the child’s current reading level.  The DRA is an assessment we give children in reading with specific questions about a particular story.  Each level has different stories and questions children must answer. 
Children are expected to move to different levels throughout the year.  Below is the chart showing the levels children should reach on each grade.
