Using LASS 11-15

LASS 11-15 is easy to administer as students require only minimum supervision. It helps identify students with dyslexia, as well as:

  • assessing attainment in reading and spelling
  • measuring discrepancies between actual and expected literacy attainment
  • identifying underlying problems in memory or phonological skills
    monitoring development in reading and spelling on a regular basis
  • evaluating progress in memory, phonological and phonic skills
  • estimating the student's intelligence
  • assessing reasoning

LASS 11-15 results
Reports give percentiles, standard scores and age equivalents (including reading and spelling ages). Results show children's strengths and weaknesses in comparison with national norms. Use of a standardised graphical profile makes it easy to spot students who are underperforming.
Any difficulties of a dyslexic nature or caused by underlying cognitive problems in phonology and/or memory can be quickly identified. Assessment can be carried out on a regular basis to monitor progress.
