Grades: 1 through Junior College
Individual Administration: 5 to 10 minutes
4 Major Scoring Areas
84-Word Range
The DSTR is a quick, valid method for estimating practical data about a studentí»s reading skills. An initial pool of 3,221 reading words was obtained by having 71 teachers, Grades 1 through 12, submit lists of up to 100 words typically taught for the first time at their grade level. Seven years of word-sample use helped to verify the 84-word range content.
Four Major Computed Scores:
1. Word Reading Comfort Level: the level at which the student knows almost all of the words and reads each without assistance.
2. Word Reading Instructional Level: the level at which the student knows 85% to 90% of the words and so reads easily enough to gradually acquire the new vocabulary and associated skills.
3. Word Reading Frustration Level: the level at which the student is unable to read so many of the words and therefore misses the essence of passage and finds the task of reading uncomfortable or unpleasant.
4. Comprehension of Passage Levels: the level at which the student is able to understand and remember the facts and subtleties of passages. Both Reading and Comprehension are tested
In addition to these basic scales, eight other subtests yield estimates of phonics and word attack proficiency in those areas. If mastered, the child would be allowed to attack a vast majority of english reading words. A grade level estimate of proficiency is suggested for each of the subtests. A Consolidation Index (CI) Score is also computed for the Instructional Word Reading Level. A low CI score (below .74) will indicate a very spotty, poorly-developed knowledge of these skills.
