These resources relate to our work around setting up a whole school literacy screening programme across a high school. We have opted to use the Edinburgh Reading Test 3 & 4 and the Graded Word Spelling Test ('The Vernon'). We also use the New Salford Single Sentence Reading Test as a qui More…ck twice yearly 'check up' for students known to be struggling at literacy. The powerpoints assist with administration. All scores are placed on a spreadsheet, the proforma is for when you need to go into more detail about an individual's results. ---> For more:
