Why are there no Spell Checks for the
late SA and the DR features?
None have been created by the program authors. If you want me to make some, let me know.
Why are there missing DR sorts?
Some DR sorts are missing because you need to make a judgement about what caused the error and teach accordingly. There is no sort for the pattern "fid"; the error the student made in the spelling will direct you to the sort you need (in this case, it would very likely be a short-vowel sort from WWP - the student likely put an "e" or a "u" between the "f" and "d"). It may be more approrpriate for your student to examine the etymology of the word - "fid" (Latin fido = trust; in English words such as confide and affidavit). There are blank sorts, or I can make some for you.
Upper Spelling Inventory Feature Guide
Clicking a language feature will take you to the first sort which features this language feature. This may not be the most appropriate one for your learners amd does not consider picture sorts.
Clicking a Spell Check link will take you to the spell check which features this language feature at that spelling stage. This can be used to better determine the sort you need.
Clicking the feature at the top of a column will take you to the index of sorts for that unit at that spelling stage, to find other sorts which may be of use to your learners. Sorts for some features spread across units.
