Synopsis

Phonics and Early Reading Assessment (PERA) Specimen Set by Colin McCarty, Kate Ruttle

Standardised test that offers the support you need to assess your pupils' phonics and early reading development with accuracy and insight. The Phonics and Early Reading Assessment (PERA) is matched to the Letters and Sounds framework and the requirements of the Year 1 'phonics screen' as well as to the teaching and assessment needs of schools both before and after the statutory test. The PERA Specimen Set contains the Manual, complete sets of the Test Cards and one copy of each of the four Pupil Record sheets. PERA uses words and non-words to assess both phonic knowledge and use of phonics for reading, reading accuracy and comprehension. It also includes an informal pre-phonics assessment to help assess the earliest stages of reading. - Child- friendly tests presented individually and orally, using illustrated, full-colour reusable cards - Parallel forms A & B allow up to four separate assessments to inform individual teaching and monitor each pupil's progress from the Foundation Stage and up to Key Stage 1 - Record sheets designed for easy marking (including miscue analysis) and diagnostic profiling - each test takes up to 10 minutes - Standardised on over 3500 pupils to provide norms - as 'ages' and standardised scores - which are reliable and fully up to date PERA Test 1, for use at the end of Reception and the first half of Year 1 (i.e. during the first four terms in school), covers phases 2-4 and into 5 of Letters and Sounds and provides detailed diagnostic information to inform teaching in the Foundation Stage. PERA Test 2 assesses phases 3-5 and into 6 of Letters and Sounds, making it ideal for familiarisation purposes before the 'phonics screen' in the Year 1 summer term. It also provides a framework for re-testing, to ensure progress is monitored and maintained throughout Year 2.
