Synopsis

Diagnostic Spelling Tests: Secondary/Adult Tests Booklet by Mary Crumpler, Colin McCarty

In-depth, standardised spelling tests with parallel forms and optional diagnostic follow-up. Each test is easy to administer and is available in parallel forms A and B. Photocopiable marking grids and targeted follow-up tests help teachers to plan an intervention programme Diagnostic Spelling Tests 3-5 are for use with secondary and older students, and adults: - Test 3 for ages 9-12 (Year 7 screening on entry) - Test 4 for ages 11-14 (Years 7-9) - Test 5 for ages 14-25+ (Years 10-13, and beyond) DST 3 assesses teaching objectives for Years 5 and 6, so is ideal for testing pupils on entry to secondary school. DST 4 and 5 are provided as photocopy masters. The vocabulary used for the spelling items in DST 4 reflects the key vocabulary identified in the KS3 National Strategy Framework for Teaching English: Years 7, 8 and 9. The words in DST 5 comprise essential elements of functional literacy. All of the target words are read aloud to the students and are set in a sentence to provide context and assist with establishing the meaning of the word.
