The WARN (Wheldall Assessment of Reading Nonwords) is a simple measure of reading performance for younger readers (Foundation and Year 1). Using the 50-word lists provided, teachers can assess a student’s level of oral reading fluency and compare this to benchmarks in one minute. No qualifications in test administration are required. The Kit comes with a Manual, Presentation Booklet, 30 Initial Assessment Record Forms, and 15 Progress Monitoring Record Forms (additional forms can be purchased separately).
The WARN can be used by classroom teachers, learning support teachers or other school personnel involved in literacy instruction. Customers are also given access to downloadable charting tools, specifically designed for tracking students’ progress.
