CoPS is the best way to solve the problem of identifying dyslexia...and the best way to prevent pupils from developing reading and writing difficulties.Karin Ohlis, Specialist Teacher, ReLS, Bollnäs, Sweden
The outcome of comprehensive research at the University of Hull and originally published in 2006, Lucid CoPS 4-7 is widely used by schools in the UK and internationally. Working with the original authors, CoPS 4-7 has been updated, re-standardised and is now available online on our GL Ready platform.
CoPS 4-7 pinpoints specific areas of need and gives a more detailed indication of a pupil’s particular strengths and weaknesses that may impact learning. It comprises nine short tests which cover working memory, phonological awareness, phonological processing, auditory discrimination and colour discrimination.
Each individual test is presented as an attractive and enjoyable game that takes about five minutes to complete. Results, in the form of graphical profiles and individual response records, clearly show children's strengths and weaknesses in comparison with national norms. Percentiles, standard scores and age equivalent scores are provided.
CoPS 4-7 is accompanied by a comprehensive teacher's manual that explains how to interpret the results so that teaching and learning can be tailored to suit the needs of individual children. Suggestions for a wide variety of teaching strategies are included.
