Salford Sentence Reading and Comprehension Test (Fifth Edition)

Salford Sentence Reading and Comprehension Test (Fifth Edition)

Authors: Maddy Barnes and Colin McCarty

Fully re-standardised and now in its fifth edition, the Salford Sentence Reading and Comprehension Test provides three parallel forms to track pupil progress, gives standardised scores as well as reading ages, includes an optional new measure of reading comprehension, and extends the test ‘ceiling’ for less able readers to 16.


  • Three parallel forms enable closer progress monitoring, with additional sentences to sharpen the assessment focus at both ends of the age/ability spectrum
  • New comprehension questions allow you to assess understanding as well as reading accuracy
  • Facilitate scoring, diagnostic analysis and monitor progress with the Record Sheet
  • The essential simplicity of the test is unchanged – teachers can assess a pupil's reading and comprehension ability in under 10 minutes
  • Recommended by Catch Up for measuring the impact of interventions 
"I like how you can clearly see the area of need through the scoring procedure”
