"The test is brilliant. We used it with a cohort who have been well below standard for the school right the way throughout … it told us so much about that cohort and their learning styles. It was quick to administer, didn’t stress the pupils and the end result was so useful."  SENCO, Hampshire school (of the trial edition)


The Diagnostic Reading Analysis is a modern oral reading test designed specifically for less able readers from 7 to 16 years. The test is carefully structured, with an initial listening comprehension passage helping to confirm the starting point for each pupil. The pupil then goes on to read, and answer questions on, three graded passages – two fiction and one non-fiction – pitched at appropriate levels of difficulty. The purpose-written reading texts utilise NLS sight words,and content and contexts with which pupils can readily engage; they are supported with full-colour illustrations throughout.

Each assessment takes about 15 minutes. No pupil has to take the whole test: the user-friendly Pupil Record points you to the next appropriate reading passage. The Pupil Record also shows at a glance which answers to the comprehension questions – literal and inferential – can be scored correct.

The Diagnostic Reading Analysis has been fully standardised and assesses reading accuracy (standardised score and reading age), reading rate and reading comprehension . Two parallel forms A and B allow for re-testing, and can additionally be used to assess short-term progress. There is also provision for informal miscue analysis and for more detailed investigation.
