I've been thinking about dropping reading from Ben's homeschool curriculum to focus completely on comprehension (starting now) and spelling (starting next year), so I decided to give him a standardized reading test this afternoon. (D.O.R.A.) Whoa?! All of the scores were exactly what I expected except one ... his word recognition was 10th grade!?!?! I expected 5th!!!
Here's the breakdown:
High Frequency Words (range K-3) = 2nd
Word Recognition (range K-12) = 10th
Phonics Subtest (range K-4) = 4th
Spelling (range K-12) = 2nd
Oral Vocabulary (range K-12) = 3rd
Comprehension (range K-12) = 1st
I used Online Reading Assessment, Math Assessment and Supplemental Instruction . You can get a single assessment in math and reading for $20 each. It's very simple, and the results are great. You can also stop during the test and resume later if necessary. Use the parent link for homeschooling. The teacher link is for bulk orders for classes. Your score report will have a both a parent and teacher version, though... don't worry.
