Purpose: Measure progress in reading year-on-year throughout primary school
Time: Untimed (approximately 20 -50 minutes)
Administration: Group; Individual
The Reading Progress Test (RPT) is available in two stages:
The RPT Stage 1 assesses pre-reading and early reading skills through administration of a Literacy Baseline test in the first year of school and two reading comprehension tests for the second and third year of school.
The RPT Stage 2 assesses literal and inferential comprehension and reading vocabulary. Reading passages are presented via reusable full-colour broadsheets.
They are particularly useful for identifying groups or individual pupils making slower – or better – progress than average.
Tests provide a standardised score, a National Curriculum level, reading ages from 4:0 to 16+ and a progress score.
