SPAR (Spelling and Reading Tests) Reading by Dennis Young

The two elements of the SPAR tests - spelling and reading - provide a complementary approach to the group testing of literacy at a simple level. The reading test is suitable for group administration to year three children having a wide range of abillity, and for less able, older children whose anticipated reading ages are less than nine years. Fully comparable norms, derived from a common standardization sample, are presented separately for reading and spelling, as quotients and as age norms. The reading test follows the same format as the widely-used Group Reading Test and is available in parallel forms A and B. The spelling items are given in the manual as banks which allow the selection of three 40-item spelling tests without overlap and more with partial overlap. Each spelling item is presented within the context of a complete sentence. Please be advised that orders of these tests are restricted to schools/institutions only. Please supply an institutional address when you place your order as we are unable to fulfil orders with a private address.

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
