A unique, direct measure of the reading ability of young children ages 3-6 through 8-6. Rather than assessing children's "readiness" for reading, the TERA-3 assesses mastery of early developing reading skills. This new edition has been redesigned to provide three subtests: Alphabet (measuring knowledge of the alphabet and its uses), Conventions (measuring knowledge of the conventions of print), and Meaning (measuring the construction of meaning from print). Standard scores are provided for each subtest. An overall reading quotient is computed using all three subtest scores.
Kit includes: Examiner's Manual, two Picture Books (Form A and Form B), and two packets of Profile/Examiner Record Forms, in a sturdy storage box.
