What if a student is outside the age range of the Spelling Diagnostic Test? Can they still do the test?
If you use either the Lower Years Spelling Diagnostic Test or Upper Years Spelling Diagnostic Test with a student whose age falls outside the age range, you won’t be able to generate an age comparison (calculated using the raw score from marking sweep one). However, you could still administer the test and only mark the diagnostic component of the test (marking sweep two), which tests students’ competency level for focus concepts.
Provide struggling students with the activities in the corresponding relevant Remediation Pack to get them up to speed.
