The Diagnostic Spelling Test: A Modification of the Wide Range Achievement Test, Spelling (Level II); A Progress Report.
Gillespie, Jacquelyn; Shohet, Jacqueline
The Diagnostic Spelling Test is an experimental modification of the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT), Spelling (Level II), which measures a student's ability to identify the correct spelling of each word in a four-alternative multiple-choice format. Each incorrect alternative is designed to reflect a specific type of spelling problem found in disabled learners and not in the general population. It is designed for diagnostic use along with the regular WRAT reading and spelling tests to identify problems in cross-modal learning involving visual and auditory integration. It also has potential for screening large groups to identify students with specific learning disabilities. (Author)
