Reading Levels

We use the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) kit. It is published by the Celebration Press division of the Pearson Learning Group. There are two versions, a K-3 and a 4-8 and the 4-8 box should go beyond level M. We just had a presentation on the latest version, and it assesses fluency as well as comprehension and reading level. It is time-consuming to use, but provides terrific information.
