TEST2r is a comprehensive assessment tool used to screen and assess the emergent literacy skills which a 5 – 6 year old child should have acquired. It is an objective measure of a child’s performance based on all of the theories of why children fail to learn. TEST2r provides an individual report on each child and pointers to intervention/resources.
Divided into two parts, the first part consists of a screener, which is made up of five tasks for use by the classroom teacher. If a child does not perform well in the screener, then the Teacher or Learning Support Teacher will administer the second part.
The remainder of the tasks are more diagnostic in nature in order to clarify any literacy sub-skill needs. The Teacher and STEN team will decide on appropriate interventions to develop these skills. The interventions may be drawn from the teacher’s own resources or from resources tab on www.test2r.ie
TEST2r is created and developed by Dr Pauline Cogan. Over 400 teachers throughout Ireland volunteered a great deal of time administering the research instruments over a period of 13 years on circa 1300 children. By such active participation in their own professional development, supported by Department of Education & Skills, they have ensured the authenticity of the research and have exemplified the best standards of professionalism. This extensive collaboration will ensure that TEST2r will be well received by all educationalists.
TEST2r is published by Blackrock Education Centre and is available to purchase from www.becpublishing.com or by contacting the Centre at 01 236 5013.
