Dyslexia Report

This article provides an overview of how to access and use the Dyslexia Report to view students’ risk levels. The Dyslexia Report is a module purchased as an add-on to Amira Assessment or Amira Practice. If you are missing this report, connect with your district Amira Leaders from more information or visit the "Our Products - Dyslexia Screener" section of our website.

The Dyslexia Report leverages the Amira Assessment tasks as a screener to calculate risk status for Dyslexia and provide a quick, sortable view by class.

Access the Dyslexia Report

  1. Click Reports in the upper right section of the screen.
  2. Select the Dyslexia Report from the Reports screen.


Use the Dyslexia Report

Use the Dyslexia Report to identify students at risk for dyslexia for further assessment, instruction, and intervention. The Dyslexia Report displays students by risk level, from highest risk to lowest. The legend to the right indicates the cutoff values for risk.

The risk level is defined by a Dyslexia Risk Indicator (DRI) score ranging from 0 to 100, with higher scores indicating higher risk of dyslexia. DRI scores greater than or equal to 30 are flagged as At Risk while scores below 30 are labeled Low Risk.  

Students who are showing as Incomplete on the Tracking Report may not be listed on the Dyslexia Report. The Dyslexia Report is based on any tasks prior to Oral Reading Fluency in the assessment.

Some students may have no DRI score and instead may be labeled with the status of Under Review. This assessment status label indicates recent assessment activity that is under review and may display for up to 72 hours after an assessment has been completed.

Sort the Dyslexia Report

Click the Risk Level or Student heading to change the sort order.

Next Steps

A frequently asked question related to this report is, "Why are some of my students missing?" Any students who appear to be "missing" from the Dyslexia Report, may need your attention on the Tracking Report because they show an assessment status of incomplete, reassess, or pre-reader.
