Synopsis

Vincent Individual Reading Test Single-word and Sentence Reading, for Ages 5-9 by Denis Vincent

The Vincent Individual Reading Test is an individually administered oral word-reading test designed particularly for the 5-9 age range - the period in which mechanical fluency in reading is normally acquired. It consists of two equivalent test forms, and takes just three minutes to give. Each form comprises 46 age-appropriate words, graded in order of difficulty and presented singly, plus three sentences to complete the test: this reflects progression from word- to sentence-level skills, and allows older and/or higher performing pupils to demonstrate competence beyond pure single-word recognition. The test gives a raw score, based on a count of all words read correctly, which can be converted to a standardised score (for chronological ages 4 to 10 years) and a reading age (4 to14 years). The test is optimised for assessing progress in normal reading development in mainstream infant and junior classrooms. The precision with which the test assesses reading throughout the crucial acquisition phase of learning to decode will also prove invaluable to learning support teachers working with older, less able pupils. The test words are printed on durable card: a separate record sheet allows easy and accurate scoring, and provides a permanent record of reading performance and progress.
