Reading Assessment Database - Search Tips
You can search for a specific title in the database by typing a
keyword from the title into the "name contains" box on the search
page. If, for example, you were looking for information about the
"Yopp-Singer Test of Phoneme Segmentation", you would only have
to type the word "Yopp" in the box labeled "name contains". You
don't need to type out the whole name -- just a keyword that you
know is in the title. Also, the search is not case-sensitive (meaning
you don't have to capitalize words).
Likewise, you can search the database for specific keywords in the subtests of the assessment tools by typing a search term in the "Subtest contains" box. So, if for example, you were looking for an assessment tool that contained a subtest for phonemic awareness, you could type "phonemic awareness" in the "Subtest contains" box, and the inventory would provide you with summaries of any assessment tool that has a "phonemic awareness" subtest.
It should be noted, however, that the labels used should be as general as possible, and the keywords do not need to be complete words. If you were looking for phonemic awareness in the subtests, your search would be more exhaustive if you only typed in the keyword "phon". This search would include assessment tools with subtests like "phoneme awareness," "phonemic knowledge," "phoneme blending," etc...
Below is a short list of some search terms that are definitely in the database. This list is not at all exhaustive, but it is a good starting point. Variations on these search terms will help you to narrow down your search of the Reading Assessment Database for Grades PreK-3.
