This test is administered to English learners in order to measure progress toward meeting Minnesota’s standards for English language development. This assessment measures students' social and academic language related to listening, speaking, reading and writing in kindergarten through grade 12.
This test is administered in February-March to kindergarten through 12th grade students identified as English learners.
The Developmental reading assessment (DRA) is used to assess students' reading abilities. DRA requires a one-on-one testing procedure, where a teacher sits with one student at a time and administers the test in an interview format to obtain reliable results.
This test is administered in the Fall, Winter and Spring.
