YARC

A more detailed analysis of reading skills: reading accuracy, reading rate and comprehension.

The York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC) is an individually administered reading assessment that allows you to closely observe a student’s reading behaviours, strengths and areas for development. When using YARC, the component skills of reading are broken down to allow you to find precise areas to target to bring about rapid progress. Parallel forms of the assessment allow you to measure the impact of interventions.

An ideal follow-up assessment for the New Group Reading Test (NGRT), YARC can be used to assess and monitor student progress across a wide range of reading skills in as little as 20 minutes.

By providing an in-depth analysis of a student's reading ability, including Standard Age Scores, age equivalent scores and percentile ranks for comprehension, rate and fluency, YARC helps you identify specific problems to inform appropriate interventions.
