I got the impression that this year there was no recommended list - as there has been in the past. However, our LA gave a helpful list. I have ordered Hodder Education Access reading test to give the children a reading comp age - there are 2 parallel tests so the idea is you do one in normal time and one with25% extra - and hopefullly prove there is improvement!! Writing speed can be done by simply asking the child to write about a topic of interst for 10 minutres and then count the number of words per minute. Remember that children with a statement automatically get 25% extra time.. I hope this is helpful - and please anyone feel free to correct me if I am not right - its my first year as Assessment co-ordinator!!!
