Grade Level Reading Assessment

Free Reading Assessment! Free Reading Comprehension Placement Test! 
Valid reading assessments must measure students strengths and weaknesses. Before beginning a reading intervention program or individual literacy plan (ILP) study and try your assessments on a cross section of students to determine efficacy and validity. The tests below and grade level word knowledge assessments are a collective sample to gain personal knowledge and experience assessing knowledge.

The test below and links are placed here in one place for educational purposes...

Schonell Reading Test: Reading Age
The child should read the words left to right. When a word gets difficult, ask the child to sound it out. If the child can't say the word, then go on to the next one. The proctor supervising the test will give one mark for each word correctly pronounced - even if the reader self corrects. The proctor will not make corrections. No prompting. No hurrying. If the reader mis-pronounces slightly as in postage with a short 'o', the first time, then ask for the word again, marking it correct if the reader has self corrected. Otherwise, do not ask for a word to be re-read. If you do not give away the pronunciation of words that the reader does not know, then this same test may be used again at a later date to assess progress as a result of a teaching program.

Assessment Tools for Reading Comprehension

Have your child read and pronounce correctly each letter or word starting with "A", the first 8 "words" are letters, then progress from left to right. When your child misses 5 words in a row, or is frustrated, then stop. Next, add the number of words using the number in brackets to help you, which keeps a tally of how many words your child has read up to that row.
As you can see this scale goes all the way up to college level. This test only assesses decoding (reading words); it does not assess reading comprehension or spelling.
Example: If your child reads all the way up to "quality" but misses the next 5 or 6 words then they would have a score of 44. A score of 44 = 4.4 grade level or 4th grade and fourth month.
