Early Reading Profile – Year 1 and 2

Year Level: Year 1 & 2

The ‘Early Reading Profile’ presents an evidence-based alternative to whole language type reading assessments

Early Reading Profiles – Year 1 & 2 is a quick single word reading assessment. It presents words that gradually increase in length and phonic complexity. The progression reflects PLD’s Structured Synthetic Phonics approach. The assessment takes minutes to present and should determine the level of the decodable books that are required for home and in-class reading. The screening and tracking process has been outlined in detail in the Year 1 & 2 Screening & Tracking Manual.

The Early Reading Profile – Year 1 & 2 contains the following:

  • Exercise 1: VC Words
  • Exercise 2: CVC Words
  • Exercise 3: CVC Words With Early Stage 1 Phonics
  • Exercise 4: CCVC and CVCC Words
  • Exercise 5: Words With Late Stage 1 Phonics
  • Exercise 6: Stage 2 Words
  • Exercise 7: Stage 3 Words

Teachers administering the screen are required to record the percentage of accuracy for each level while rating the level of automaticity observed. Training to administer the screen can be found in the following online courses:

Educators should find that ‘Early Reading Profile – Year 1 & 2’ outlines a fairly standard SSP progression which can be utilised in conjunction with other evidence-based SSP programs. See our Copyright Terms of Use at https://pld-literacy.org/help-pages/copyright-policy/.
