Sentence reading

Sentence reading is an adaptive subtest that involves finding the missing word in a sentence. Students are presented with a sentence that has one word missing and a picture to go with the sentence. Students select the correct word from five words at the bottom of the screen by clicking on it. The student starts by attempting some ‘probe’ items to determine the level at which they should start the test. Their progress through the subtest depends on their performance and the subtest is discontinued when the student fails a certain number of items within a level.
