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.
