The Sutherland Phonological Awareness Test -Revised (SPAT-R) is an individual diagnostic test of phonological and phonemic awareness (syllable awareness, rhyming, phoneme identification, and phoneme manipulation), with Australian norms covering the first to fourth year of schooling. The SPAT-R can also be used diagnostically for older children.

The SPAT-R also includes brief tests of nonword reading and spelling, with a diagnostic analysis of phonemic awareness as demonstrated by nonword spelling skills.

There are no formal qualification requirements for administering the SPAT-R, 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.
