The School Entry Alphabetic and Phonological Awareness Readiness Test (SEAPART) is a screening test of phonological awareness and early alphabet knowledge, suitable for administration to children just before or just after school entry. The SEAPART is criterion referenced, providing information about the mastery of foundational skills.
This precursor to the Sutherland Phonological Awareness Test - Revised (SPAT-R) is suitable for use from preschool up to the point where formal literacy skills are being introduced in primary school. It provides information about strengths and weaknesses in phonological awareness and alphabet knowledge, and takes less than fifteen minutes to administer and score.
There are no formal qualification requirements for administering the SEAPART, but it is expected that test users will be thoroughly familiar with test administration and interpretation, will have watched the demonstration movie, and will have practised giving the test before administering it formally to students.
