SPAR (Spelling & Reading Tests) Reading Test B Reading Test B 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.
