Access Reading Test (ART) Manual by Mary Crumpler, Colin McCarty

The popular Access Reading Test is designed for wide-range assessment and pinpoints strengths and weaknesses in four key reading skill areas: Literal Comprehension, Vocabulary, Comprehension requiring inference or prediction and Comprehension requiring analysis. - The manual describes how to use the test and how to establish if a student may be eligible for extra time in national tests or examinations - Now with four carefully matched parallel forms (A-D), the test takes just 30 minutes to administer, and is easy to score - Enables assessment of pupils from Key Stage 2 up to A level and beyond with general-purpose group test for use across the full ability range - Provides reliable assessment for each group with reading ages and percentiles, together with NC levels for Key Stage 3 and performance data in each skill area - Ideal as an initial 'screen' on entry to secondary school and for monitoring subsequent progress - Allows students to meet a variety of graded texts (fiction and non-fiction), styles and contexts with gradually increasing difficulty within each
