By accurately determining a child’s reading strengths and weaknesses, a classroom teacher can develop an instruction strategy that best serves the child’s needs. ERDA SECOND EDITION provides a comprehensive diagnostic tool that measures the five research-based building blocks of reading at kindergarten through third grade. ERDA SECOND EDITION diagnoses understanding of phonemic and phonological awareness through a series of subtests that assess the child’s ability to hear sound units in spoken language: phonemes, rhymes (kindergarten only), rime, and syllables.
