Adult Reading Test, Second Edition (ART-2)

Product Description

The Adult Reading Test, Second Edition (ART-2) includes 8 passages, 4 read silently, 4 aloud. The 2 parallel tests use 4 passages each, increase in difficulty and are suitable to assess students in both the further and higher education context.

A new standardisation has been undertaken involving three FE Colleges and four HEIs.

The ART-2 can be used in a variety of ways; to assess oral reading, silent reading or compare the two. There is also a two minute writing task to assess writing speed.

Most passages are new, with some retained from the original ART. The first passage is aimed at basic literacy skills, progressing to an advanced passage for highly competent readers.


Scores are available for reading accuracy, reading comprehension, reading speed and writing speed, as centiles and as standard scores.

ART-2 and the Disabled Students Allowances (DSA)

ART-2 has been reviewed and approved for use in the Assessment of Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) in Higher Education/DSA applications. Further information can be found on the SASC website
