Sunshine Phonics Decodables Assessment Kit
3. Assessment of Reading Accuracy (ARA) and 4. Comprehension
The ARA is an assessment of a student’s decoding and reading skills. The ARA is based around 18 new unseen texts written by leading international author Susan Frame – there is one unseen text per Set per Series. The ARA comprises a student sheet containing the unseen text plus a marking and analysis sheet for the teacher. The ARA allows teachers to assess just how well a student has assimilated their phonics knowledge and word blending skills.
For students who have completed the ARA, there are optional retell and comprehension questions supplied for each unseen text. For Sets 1-3 there are three literal and vocabulary questions; for higher Sets there are four literal, inferential and vocabulary questions.
Each assessment can be downloaded individually when needed, or a complete set can be downloaded using the button below.
