Dd is 7 and in 2nd grade. She read the entire Harry Potter series this summer.
At school, they use the DRA (Developmental Reading Assessment) system. Under this system, apparently it's not reliable/valid/allowed (? I dunno, but it's against the 'rules') to test more than a year above grade level. So, dd's teacher tested her on the highest DRA level he could (38 - the max at the end of the year will be 40). This corresponds to third grade level.
I KNOW dd is decoding and comprehending at a higher level. I want to ask the school to test her reading so we have a real plan for what type of material she needs to be working on. Her teacher is willing and able to give her books at a higher level, but it's going to be hit or miss unless we know she's getting stuff at her level.
Any ideas on what tests do allow an accurate assessment of current reading level (decoding and comprehension) for kids who are more than a single grade level ahead? (she's more like 3-4). Her decoding is probably a bit weaker than her comprehension, if that matters.
