The Salford Sentence Reading Test is a simple and quick individual test of oral reading based on sentences of carefully graded difficulty. Consistently popular with both classroom teachers and SENCOs, it has been brought fully up to date, with new norms based on the performance of almost 10000 children nationally. It now gives reading ages up to 11:3, with standardised scores for less able readers extending to age 13 for reading accuracy (age 14 for comprehension). The New Salfords three parallel forms enable closer progress monitoring, with additional sentences to sharpen the assessment focus at both ends of the age/ability spectrum. New comprehension questions allow you to assess understanding as well as reading accuracy, while the Record Sheet facilitates scoring, diagnostic analysis and monitoring progress. The essential simplicity of the test is unchanged.The laminated cards for Forms A, B and C are reusable, and the test can take as little as 4 minutes per pupil. One-to-one oral delivery plus everyday contexts and vocabulary make this test ideal for use with less able readers from about age 6. The test is recommended by Catch Up. This Specimen Set includes the manual and all of the test cards, plus a single copy of the Record Sheet.
