skills assessed
Isolated Sounds — Students hear a voice (generated by the computer) producing isolated sounds. The student must identify what letter corresponds to the sound (phoneme). (Only in Level 1 - see notes).

Spelling — Students hear a voice (generated by the computer) saying real and nonsense words. The student must correctly spell the words dictated by the computer. The computer tracks and categorizes spelling errors, and organizes reports based on competence with different phonics rules (e.g. short vowels, long vowels and dipthongs, consonant digraphs, etc.).

and test design data
This is a criterion-referenced assessment; no normative data is provided.
Notes This is a computer-based assessment that allows students to be tested on-line. The computer can then generate reports for student, classroom, or school. The skills assessed are generally tested across different levels of difficulty ranging from Level 1 (single sounds or phonemes in isolation) to Level 5 (sounds within multi-syllabic words). A collection of practice exercises for each of the tested domains is provided with RAPS. Other software products are meant to use in conjunction with RAPS — My Reading Coach, and FLRT.
