Deciphering DRA Decoding

This is Alison Whiteley from Toad-ally Exceptional Learners with a coaching session. A question teacher's have been asking is what to do with the DRA rubric after they are scored. How do you use the information to plan instruction and next steps? (I always tell teachers to use the data they have to collect or they have created first before trying to figure out else they may need.) When you look at a DRA rubric it is broken into two parts: oral reading (decoding and fluency and comprehension.) Stop by my Blog: Toad-ally Exceptional Learners to see how I use the DRA rubric to move students. I have included two freebies I use when working on phonics and make sure students are meeting expectations.
