A test of oral reading, based on a series of short narratives, providing summative measures and detailed diagnostic information.
The Neale Analysis of Reading Ability (NARA) measures the accuracy, comprehension and rate of reading in pupils from the age of 6 to 12 years. It provides a comprehensive gauge of a pupil’s interest in reading.
The individually administered assessment consists of parallel forms for testing and extension passages for use with more able or older pupils. Two alternate standardised tests enable the monitoring of a pupil’s performance without them becoming too familiar with the passages, in addition to one diagnostic test.
