YARC Score Conversion Tool

York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension: Early Reading and Passage Reading Primary (YARC Primary) and York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension: Passage Reading Secondary (YARC Secondary) come with a free online Score Conversion Tool. By inputting pupil details and raw score results into a simple template, all converted scores are computed immediately resulting in a simple, one page report. There is a section for teachers and practitioners to include comments and observations too. Each programme has a help section that gives more information – for example about saving and correcting reports that have been generated.

The program automatically calculates ability scores, standard age scores and age equivalent scores for each part of YARC Primary and YARC Secondary that has been administered. This means that more time can be given to administering the assessments and reviewing performance rather than spent looking up tables of data. There are three versions of the YARC Score Conversion Tool; Early Reading, Passage Reading Primary and Passage Reading Secondary.
