What is the Burt Word Comprehension Test?
A reading test consisting of 110 increasingly difficult words, it is intended to be a one-on-one test of a child’s recognition of those words, as they read them out to the teacher.
The teacher keeps a record of which words the child read correctly, and at the end of the test the final tally provides their score.
This score can then be used to determine the child’s reading age.
