3.Phonics Test Teacher Training Soi Dao Andrew Stenning Phonics Reading Test

This test is designed to check the phonics decoding skills of students of all ages. It consists of a one page word list and three pages of sentences, all written with words that follow the major phonics sounds and rules of English. Good readers will be able to read the word list and sentences with few or no mistakes. Weak phonics decoding skills are the root of many reading problems. Students must be fluent and accurate decoders or they will never achieve good reading comprehension, spelling, and writing. This test gives me a quick and easy reality check of a student’s true phonics skill level.
