DORA (Diagnostic Reading Assessment K-12)

Seton Testing Services has partnered with Let’s Go Learn® to bring you a Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment (DORA) for grades K-12.

DORA is a comprehensive, valid, and reliable web-based assessment that diagnostically assesses your child’s reading abilities. Functioning like a personal reading specialist, it adapts to your child as they respond to each question in the online program, getting harder or easier as needed to complete the diagnosis. DORA’s interactive style makes testing fun, engages students, and enables testing from any location, including your own home. Have your student take DORA at periodic intervals throughout the year to track their progress.


The 8 sub-skills of reading assessed by DORA are:

  • high-frequency words
  • word recognition
  • phonics
  • phonemic awareness
  • oral vocabulary
  • spelling
  • reading comprehension
  • fluency


  • Administration by anyone
  • Administration at any time
  • Interactive test adapts to student responses by difficulty level and construct, clearly identifying mastery/non-mastery
  • Interactive technology features a mix of audio, text, and multimedia images to engage all students
