The aim of this study was to compare the York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC) with the Neale Analysis of Reading Ability (NARA) and other measures of reading and related skills with a sample of older low-progress readers and to provide additional information regarding the validity of the YARC in Australia. The data from an opportunity sample of 78 older low-progress readers from two literacy tutorial centres, assessed on a battery of tests of reading and related skills, prior to intervention, were analysed. Correlations of the YARC with other measures were generally high and the YARC also appeared to yield similar mean reading age estimates as the NARA and other measures.
