Reading Assessment Database: Search Results


The essential cognitive elements of the reading process have been outlined in the Cognitive Framework of Reading. To assist educators in organizing their assessment practices around the cognitive framework, we've created a way to easily search for published early reading assessments that specifically test skills and knowledge outlined by the Cognitive Framework of Reading.

To find out more about the Reading Assessment Database, you can read the overview page for a description of the database and tips for using it effectively.

Student Priorities and Interests — inventories and checklists are provided to help teachers determine reading habits and interests.

English Language Screen — a set of questions requiring simple responses to determine the student's comprehension of English.

Graded word lists — the student identifies lists of words increasing in difficulty from grades Pre-K to high school. Words are a mix of regular and irregular words that should be within the oral vocabulary of students at each grade.

Graded reading passages — at every level (K-12), there are three comparable passages of text. One is to be read aloud by the student, the second is to be read silently by the student, and the third is to be read aloud by the teacher to the student. As the student reads aloud, the teacher monitors oral reading for accuracy (making note of different types of "miscues"). After each passage, the teacher asks the student to retell the story, and also asks a set of simple, explicit comprehension questions plus one inferential (interpretive) comprehension question.

Rhyme Recognition — word pairs are presented orally to the student, and the student must decide if the word pairs rhyme.

Initial Phoneme Recognition — words are presented to the student, and the student must repeat the first phoneme in the word.

Phonemic Manipulation — two sections: in the blending section, the teacher says words aloud with a clear pause between each phoneme, and the student must identify the word. In the segmentation section, the teacher says a word, and the student must repeat the word inserting a clear pause between each phoneme.

Letter Knowledge — the student must demonstrate knowledge of upper-case and lower-case letters in three different ways: by pointing to the correct letter from a set of all letters when the teacher provides the name, by providing the name when the teacher points to each letter, and by writing the correct letters when the teacher reads them aloud.

Hearing Letter Names in Words — twelve words with initial phonemes that sound like letter names (e.g. X-ray and deep) are read aloud to the student, and the student must identify the letter name at the beginning of the word.

Initial Consonant Phonics — a variety of words are presented with the same ending letters (OP) but with different first letters (e.g. ZOP, MOP, FOP). The student must correctly pronounce each word.

Initial Consonant Blend Phonics — same as previous subtest, but initial consonant blends are varied (e.g. STOP, FROP, PLOP)

Initial Consonant Digraphs — same as previous subtest, but initial consonant digraphs are varied (e.g. THOP, WHOP, PHOP)

Medial Vowel Phonics — same as previous, but the medial vowel is varied while the rest of the word remains the same (e.g. FAP, FEP, FOP)

Vowel Digraph Phonics — vowel digraphs vary and the rest of the word varies, too (e.g. SOOK, TEW, AUT)

Reversals — reversible words are given (e.g. PAL, TEN, WAS), and the student is asked to read them aloud correctly and quickly.

Structural Analysis — students read lists of nonsense words with real affixes aloud. Students also read compound words aloud.

Spelling — various lists emphasizing different spelling conventions are given to the students to spell

Visual Discrimination — students must match identical letters, words, and phrases

Auditory Discrimination — students must determine if two words read aloud to them are identical or different (e.g. BUS-BUS versus ROPE-RAP)

Literacy Concepts — student demonstrates basic knowledge of print concepts

Syntax (Word) Matching — the teacher reads a sentence repeatedly to a student, and then points to one word in the sentence. The student must determine what word the teacher is pointing to.

Semantics Cloze Tasks — a passage with words missing is read aloud to the student. For each missing word in the passage, the student must provide a semantically and syntactically reasonable word.

Grammatical Closure — students must complete sentences with grammatically correct words (e.g. I saw one man. Then I saw three _____.)

This book contains a collection of early literacy assessments for young students as well as reading comprehension and competence assessments for older students.

Early literacy assessments:

Letter Knowledge — student identifies each of 26 upper-case and lower-case letters.

Writing — Student demonstrates knowledge of print concepts by writing letters, words, and sentences (not from dictation).

Literacy Knowledge — Student demonstrates knowledge of print concepts by answering questions about print (point to letter, tell purpose of punctuation, etc.)

Wordless Picture Reading — Student makes up a story based on pictures given in a sequence.

Caption Reading — Student reads captions under pictures aloud. Oral reading accuracy is assessed.

Auditory discrimination — A test of the student's phonology; pairs of identical or similar words are read aloud to the student, and the student determines if the word pairs are the same or different.

Phoneme Awareness (Spelling) — Not really a test of phoneme awareness (see notes). Words are read aloud to the student, and the student must spell the word.

Phoneme Segmentation — This is a test of phoneme awareness (see notes). Words are read aloud to the student, and the student must repeat the word inserting a pause between each phoneme.

Word Knowledge — Students identify each word in a list and are rated on their accuracy.

Passage Reading — at the pre-primer level, very short passages of text are read aloud while the teacher monitors reading accuracy.

Reading Inventory

Graded Word Lists — Modified Dolch lists designed to help teachers quickly estimate the reading level of students. The lists are meant to be followed by passages of connected text.

Oral Reading Accuracy — Student reads passages aloud; teachers record the different types of errors or "miscues" the student makes.

Oral Reading Fluency — a note is made that teachers can use the graded reading passages to assess oral reading fluency for rate and expression. Norms for reading rates are provided.

Oral Reading Comprehension — Passages are a mix of expository and narrative form. Explicit comprehension questions about details from the text are provided after each passage, but teachers are encouraged to supplement the questions with retelling and discussion.

Listening Comprehension — A note is made that passages can be used to determine a student's "listening comprehension level."

and test design data
This is a criterion-referenced collection of assessments. No normative or validation information is provided.
Notes This collection of assessments is primarily designed to help teachers identify each student's independent, instructional, and frustration reading levels. Guides are provided to help teachers determine each child's different reading levels. Some of the reading passages are equivalent in difficulty, so teachers can use this assessment as a pre- and post-test of reading competence. The Phoneme Awareness (Spelling) assessment is really a test of letter-sound knowledge — the Phoneme Segmentation test is actually a test of phoneme awareness.

This is a collection of assessment tools, and the skills measured depend on the assessment given. Each assessment contains multiple subtests.

Readiness — too many subtests to list (27 subtests). Examples include recognizing colors, self-help skills, drawing a person, visual motor skills, visual discrimination, letter and alphabet knowledge, letter and number writing, counting and gross motor skills.

Listening comprehension — five subtests: Auditory discrimination (phonology), sentence memory, following oral directions (language comprehension), listening vocabulary grade-placement test, listening comprehension grade-placement test.

Word recognition grade-placement test — a test of decoding skill; words from a graded word list are read aloud

Oral reading — graded passages; oral reading accuracy is scored. A test of decoding skill.

Reading and listening comprehension — two subtests: Reading vocabulary comprehension grade placement test (child must pick one word from a group that does not belong) and graded comprehension passages (comprehension is assessed through multiple-choice questions)

Word analysis — the word analysis survey is one subtest: auditory discrimination, reading rhymes, and reading words in word families. The word analysis section also contains other non-validated assessments which are similar to the sub-parts of the word analysis survey (but which are too numerous to list here).

Functional word recognition — basic sight vocabulary, direction words, number words, warning and safety signs, information signs, warning labels and food labels

Spelling — spelling grade placement (graded word lists), initial consonants, initial blends and digraphs, suffixes, prefixes, and number words

Score reporting
and test design data
Scores are presented as raw scores, percentiles, grade-equivalent scores, and age-equivalent scores. Criterion-referenced categories are also provided to give a categorical description of the student's performance. This assessment battery was standardized on a representative nationwide sample of 1,121 children. Test-retest reliability in the lower grades was in the .85 range, and the inter-rater reliability, alternative forms reliability, and internal consistency measures were all also uniformly high. Validity was assessed using the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, the Stanford Achievement Test, and the California Achievement Test.
Notes This inventory has options for group testing on certain subtests. Two forms of the test are available for pre- and post-test applications. In the word analysis section, special attention is given to the position of the sounds/letters in the words (e.g. initial consonant or final consonant). Also, special consideration is given to blends and digraphs. The revised version of this assessment battery was published in August of 1998. This assessment battery also includes assessments in speech, writing, basic math, graphs and maps, and reference skills.

and test design data
This is both a criterion-referenced and norm-referenced collection of assessments. Raw scores are compared against a criterion for success, and are described categorically — "red" being of greatest concern for dyslexia, "green" being of least concern. Growth norms are also provided to monitor the growth of students over time (relative to a normed sample). Internal consistency and test-retest reliability measures were within expected ranges for young students. The validity of the assessment was determined using other existing early reading assessments (e.g. ESI-R, BSRA, WPPSI-III).
Notes There are 16 subtest in this assessment battery. In addition to those listed above, there are other tests of number knowledge, visual memory, fine motor control, and postural stability.
