16 June 2017 - Launch of TEST2r

TEST2r is a tool to assist teachers in the classroom to devise a programme to meet the learning needs of each pupil. It is composed of a screening test, designed to be administered by the teacher in a classroom. If required, an accompanying diagnostic test will identify particular sub-skills not yet mastered by the child.

This test is based on the literature regarding reading development and sub-skills required by children to become competent and flexible readers. As such, the tool is designed for use by children at the age of 5/6 years.

The test was officially launched on 16th June 2017 by Minister Mary Mitchell O'Connor:
