The Word Decision Test assesses children's ability to make decisions between known meaningful words and nonsense words. This test is suitable for children with a reading age of between five and eleven, and can be given either individually or to a group of children. It takes just four minutes to complete, and gives a reading age for each child.
Children whose reading age is clearly below their chronological age can then be tested on The Letter Decision Test to identify whether their problem lies at the letter or word level. This test assesses children's ability to recognise written letters, takes a total of just three minutes and is suitable for children with reading ages between four years and eight years, seven months.
The Reading Decision Test also includes an instructor's manual which gives step by-step instructions on how to administer and score the test, as well as providing details of it's standardisation, test-retest reliability and validity. This test will be a valuable tool for researchers in the fields of cognitive, developmental, and educational psychology; facilitating the rapid assessment of word decoding ability in both individuals and groups, and detecting problems during the initial stages of learning to read.
