Wheldall Assessment of Reading Nonwords
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 just one minute. The lists can then be utilised on a fortnightly basis to monitor the performance of individual readers. The WARN may also be used to predict likely performance on the Phonics Screening Check so that any necessary intervention may be commenced in good time.
The WARN is suitable for use by classroom teachers, learning support teachers and other school personnel involved in literacy instruction, as no special qualifications in test administration are required.
Customers purchasing InitiaLit–Foundation and MiniLit Sage (for the first time) will receive a free copy of the WARN with their Kit. WARN will be available for shipping from commencement of Term 2 2021.
