The test includes 8 passages, 4 read silently and 4 aloud. The 2 parallel tests use 4 passages each, increase in difficulty and are suitable to assess students in both further and higher education context.
A new standardisation has been undertaken involving three further education colleges and four higher educational institutions.
The test can be used in a variety of ways; to assess oral reading, silent reading or compare the two. There is also a two minute writing task to assess writing speed.
Most passages are new, with some retained from the original ART. The first passage is aimed at basic literacy skills, progressing to an advanced passage for highly competent readers.
Scores are available for reading accuracy, reading comprehension, reading speed and writing speed, as centiles and as standard scores.
