1 Woodcock Reading Mastery Test-Revised

2 Purpose The Woodcock Reading Mastery Test-Revised-Normative Update is a comprehensive individual assessment of reading ability. The WRMU-R was re-normed in

3 ages 5 years 0 months through 75
Appropriate for: Grades K-16 ages 5 years 0 months through 75 Time – minutes for each cluster of individually administered tests

4 Reliability Internal reliability Tests median = .91 (range .68 to .98)
Clusters median = .95 (range .87 to .98) Total median = .97 (range .86 to .99)


6 Readiness Form G Only Visual Auditory learning Letter identification
A task to determine if the student can associate symbols with words Tests memory, attention, grouping of word parts (i.e., ing with verbs) Letter identification Alphabet recognition Different fonts Print and cursive

7 Basic Skills Test 3: Word identification Reading words
Begins with one word on a page and advances to multiple words 106 items in increasing difficulty The student does not need to know what any of the words mean Average score for a kindergarten student is 1 Average score for a student in 12th grade is 96

8 Basic Skills Test 4: Word Attack Reading two types of words
Nonsense words Words with very low frequency usage Measures the ability to apply phonic and structural analytic skills Training is provided so the student will know how to approach the test

9 Comprehension Test 5: Word Comprehension Subtest 5A: Antonyms
3 subtests Each begins with sample items Training continues until competes the item correctly. Subtest 5A: Antonyms Measures ability to read a word and respond orally with a word opposite in meaning

10 Comprehension Subtest 5B: Synonyms Comprehension of reading vocabulary
Read a word and state another word similar in meaning Synonyms are “a more difficult cognitive processing task than Antonyms.” p. 7

11 Comprehension Subtest 5C: Analogies
Read a pair of words; ascertain the relationship, read the first word of the second pair, use the same relationship to supply a word to complete the analogy Demonstrates content embedded word knowledge

12 Word comprehension reading vocabularies
General reading Science-mathematics Social studies Humanities

13 Comprehension Test 6: Passage Comprehension Modified cloze procedure
Short passage with a blank line Student supplies a word that “fits” in the blank The first 1/3 of the passage are one sentence long and have a picture related to the text

14 Administration The test battery will take an experienced tester about 45 minutes Test by complete pages

15 Follow the basal rules Start at the points indicated in the tables in the test easel If the student is correct on the first 6 items, a basal is established. If less than 6 are correct, go back a page and administer the whole page. Continue to test backwards starting with the first item on a page until the first 6 on a page are correctly answered

16 Ceiling rules 6 or more consecutively failed items that end with the last item on a test page. See page 22 for an example of basal and ceiling scoring

17 Word identification MUST know how to pronounce the words in the test (p ) A table of suggested starting points is provided in the easel If the student does not respond to the first item, score it 0 and say the word and ask the student to repeat it NO OTHER WORDS WILL BE READ TO THE STUDENT WRITE what the student said for incorrect responses Write comments the student says

18 Word attack If the student scores 0 or 1 on the word identification, a score of 0 can be recorded for Word Attack (For our practice, don’t do this) Begin with the 2 sample items; then proceed to item 1 Study the pronunciation guide (p ) The student must answer within 5 seconds The “word” must be read naturally –not sunded out for the final reading WRITE what the student says

19 Word comprehension For all three subtests, the student reads the item aloud and responds orally Only single word responses are acceptable Mispronunciations are not errors WRITE what the student says Begin with the practice item in each subtest

20 Scoring Score as you administer the test Score 1 or 0 by the item
Write any comments and erroneous responses Raw score is the sum of correct responses plus 1 point for every item below the basal

21 Scoring word comprehension
Antonyms and Synonyms combined score Calculate the score for each subtest Add them Convert this raw score to a part score Record in the box labeled 5A+5B part score Covert the Analogies raw score to a part score Sum both part scores for a Word comprehension W score

22 Reading vocabularies Count the correct responses for the Test 5 subtests The designation for each response is coded on the test record G general reading SM science and math SOC social studies H humanities

23 Age and grade calculations
Age is standard- use the AGS calculator if you wish Grade placement is by tenths of the school year See table in the test protocol or on page 32
