    Reading in the room

    I can tell you that I used DRA to assess the 17 kids in my reading group. While the others quietly worked, the testing student read aloud in the same room. None of the other kids seemed to be paying attention -- and, based on the latter scores versus the first scores, it didn't seem to make a difference. I had previously tested all of these kids using the STAR Reading program and knew their approximate reading level.

    It is time consuming -- but if you've got to, you've got to! I tried to find fun activities for the other students to do during the time. I bought a large collection of old (1980s) Highlights magazines at a flea market and the kids were engrossed in the stories and games.
