The Aston Index consists of 17 sub-tests, the use of which will indicate the nature of an individual child's learning potential for literacy. The subtest scores yield a 'profile' from which a teacher can perceive the levels of 'readiness' for learning; and which sub-skills and abilities will need special help in teaching.
Using the Aston Index, you will build up a complete profile of your student's ability and attainment in different skill areas. It offers a thorough understanding of the needs and difficulties of individual children and a sound base for planning a programme of remedial work.
