DORA Teacher-Administered Fluency Sub-test
 
This paper-and-pencil oral reading fluency sub-test is supplemental to Let's Go Learn's Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment (DORA).

Use it to measure a student's oral reading fluency skills as well as to gain additional diagnostic insights through direct interaction with students.

Oral reading fluency is an important indicator of a child's ability to read words automatically in the context of phrases and sentences. Often, a child's oral reading fluency is related to how well he or she understands a piece of text. The less fluent a child's reading is, the less he or she tends to comprehend the text. Because oral reading fluency requires listening to the student read while making annotations about the nature of his or her reading, it is a measure that must be administered one-on-one with the student.

There are two versions of DORA's oral reading fluency sub-test: one which only measures oral fluency and another which allows teachers to measure oral fluency coupled with comprehension. The oral reading fluency sub-test with comprehension questions will take longer to administer and score because of the extra comprehension component. Please be aware that the comprehension component of DORA's oral reading fluency sub-test should be considered supplemental to DORA's silent reading comprehension sub-test because it does not contain the same level of quantitative accuracy as the silent reading comprehension sub-test. This is because of differences in how one teacher might administer the oral reading fluency sub-test relative to another teacher.

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.
