Spelling

Spelling is an adaptive subtest that involves spelling single words. Students are presented with a picture on the screen and hear a word and a sentence putting the word into context. Students type the individual word. The student starts by attempting some ‘probe’ items to determine the level at which they should start the subtest. 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.
