Does DORA provide users with a Lexile score?
Technically, DORA is not a Lexile assessment. Lexile is a readability scale of text. DORA provides a Lexile equivalency score, which is the highest level passage a student has read and demonstrated mastery of by answering questions correctly.

Scores may vary between DORA and a Lexile assessment like SRI (Scholastic Reading Inventory) because of test format. SRI uses short passages and allows look back. SRI also has grade-level vocabulary embedded in its passages which makes it harder for ELL students, who may have good comprehension strategy skills but lack the necessary vocabulary to demonstrate mastery. DORA has longer passages which increase in length as the grade level of the passage goes up. It also uses non-fiction, which is a harder genre for test-takers. DORA does use lower vocabulary in its passages since there is a separate vocabulary measure. So, the Comprehension sub-test is less biased by vocabulary, and comprehension skills can actually be isolated and tested.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
