Gray Oral Reading Test (GORT) This is a norm-referenced reliable reading test. This test measures the rate of reading, accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. This test is appropriate for individuals ages 6 years to 18 years. The GORT has four major purposes: (1) to help identify those students who are significantly below their peers in reading; (2) to determine strengths and weaknesses in reading and comprehension skills; (3) to document students’ progress in reading as a result of special intervention programs; and (4) to compare reading skills of different age groups.
Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) This test is designed to test reading, spelling, and arithmetic skills. The test can be used with individuals from age 5 to age 74. WRAT is a great tool for measuring student progress on a yearly basis.
