York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC)

A detailed analysis of reading skills for every phase of learning.

There is a York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC) appropriate to all school age ranges: Early Reading, Primary Passage Reading and Secondary Passage Reading.

This individually-administered reading assessment allows you to closely observe a pupil’s reading behaviours, strengths and areas for development. It breaks down the components of reading so that you can target specific skills to bring about rapid progress. Parallel forms of the assessment allow you to measure the impact of interventions.

YARC can be used independently or as a follow-up assessment, aligning with the Simple View of Reading to provide a balanced profile of decoding and comprehension skills.
