This article provides an overview of how to access and use the Dyslexia Report to understand student 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 for 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 who need further assessment, instruction, and intervention.

  • The Dyslexia Report displays students by risk level, from highest to lowest 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

  • A score of 0 (zero) is the lowest risk score

  • The length of the score bar is 0, so there will be no green bar for a score of 0 (zero)

  • A score of -1 indicates that a student took the assessment but Amira was unable to produce a valid score based on limited or no student performance data (typically for early readers still learning letters and sounds)

  • DRI scores greater than or equal to 30 are flagged as At Risk while scores below 30 are labeled Low Risk

  • The legend is displayed below

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.
