and test design data
Raw scores can be converted to percentiles or stanines. A guide is also provided to convert scores into criterion-referenced readiness categories (High, Above Average, Average, etc.). This test was standardized and normed using a nation-wide sample of 3,071 students. Reliability was determined using part-score techniques. Validity was determined using intercorrelations among the subtests.
Notes This is a test of reading readiness given to students at or before the beginning of 1st grade to determine their aptitude for reading. Mathematical Knowledge is also assessed by this test battery.
