The 81 tests described in this bibliography are designed to assess children's proficiency in those skill areas necessary for success in learning to read. Among the skills tested are visual perception, auditory discrimination, letter identification, vocabulary, and word recognition. Many of the tests measure a child's eligibility for kindergarten or 1st grade. This document is one in a series of topical bibliographies from the Test Collection (TC) at the Educational Testing Service (ETS) containing descriptions of more than 18,000 tests and other measurement devices prepared by commercial publishers, teachers, educational institutions, professional associations, departments of education, counselors, etc. Each description contains the following basic information: TC Accession Number (a six-digit identification number assigned by the Test Collection); the title of the instrument; personal or institutional author; year of publication or copyright; availability source; grade level for which test is suitable; age level for which test is suitable; and abstract. Other information, which is provided when known, includes subtests, number of test items, and time required to complete the test.
