Process for Implementing SRA Reading Laboratory®

SRA Reading Laboratory® is a flexible program that can be easily implemented to fit a variety of school calendars and schedules. Below are some tips that have been proven to be successful in classrooms over the past 60 years.

Pre-Test Phase

You begin using the program in your classroom by giving a short six-minute test—the Starting Level Guide—to determine the color level in which each student should start. Even if your students have used the program before, it is still important to begin each school year with the Starting Level Guide and other introductory procedures to ensure the smooth working of the system.
