Synopses & Reviews
The SDRT provides a comprehensive assessment of reading skills. Four subtests assess word recognition, oral reading comprehension, silent reading comprehension, and listening comprehension. The SDRT can be used for screening, to determine whether reading problems exist at the student's present grade placement, or for a thorough diagnosis of reading skills that includes a comparison of decoding reading skills. Since the test provides guidelines for interpreting performance in terms of vocational literacy levels, it is especially useful with adults in a career guidance setting.
