Abstract:
The Stanford Diagnostic Reading Test (SDRT) measures the major components of the reading process and should be used to diagnose students' strengths and weaknesses in reading. The results can be used by teachers to group students according to their specific instructional needs. The test has four levels: Red, Green, Brown, and Blue. Red is designed for students at the end of first grade through the second grade as well as for very low achieving third graders. It measures skills in auditory discrimination, phonetic analysis, auditory vocabulary, word recognition, and comprehension of short sentences and paragraphs. Green is for grades 3 and 4 as well as for very low achieving 5th graders. It measures skills in auditory discrimination, phonetic and structural analysis, auditory vocabulary, and literal and inferential comprehension. Brown is for grades 5-8 as well as for low achieving high school students. It measures skills in phonetic and structural analysis, auditory vocabulary, literal and inferential comprehension of textual, functional, and recreational reading material, and reading rate. and Blue is for grades 9-12 and community colleges. This level measures skills in phonetic and structural analysis, reading vocabulary, literal and inferential comprehension of textual, functional, and recreational reading material, word parts, reading rate, and scanning and skimming. Norms are available for each level for both spring and fall, and a special multilevel norms booklet is used when testing students out of grade level. Tests may be scored either by machine or by hand, and corresponding answer sheets are available for either option. Raw scores are converted to percentiles, stanines, normal curve equivalents, grade equivalents, and scaled scores. Information about test development, norming, reliability, and validity is not part of the EAC East collection.
