Middle and Upper Primary Early Reading Screen
The Early Reading Screen presents an evidence-based alternative to whole-language reading assessments
The Upper and Middle Primary Early Reading Screen 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 (SSP) approach. The assessment takes two to three minutes per student to present and should be used to determine the level of decodable reading books that are required for home and in-class reading. The screening and tracking process has been outlined in detail in the Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening & Tracking Manual.
The Middle and Upper Primary Early Reading Screen 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 course:
