68 slides of 5 reading texts and self-marking comprehension questions to assess the level of English reading comprehension ranging from beginners to advanced.
There are 5 reading tasks for learners to complete.
• A simple form
• A short personal information text
• A short narrative
• An advertisement
• A short report which is compared with the advertisement
Each text is followed by a few questions and question types include multiple choice, short answer, matching and sequencing questions.
Based on the ISLPR (International Second Language Proficiency Rating) learners can get an idea on what kind of text types, vocabulary and language they understand between the 0+ to 1+ range.
At the end of each reading task learners receive advice on whether they should study at a beginner, intermediate or advanced level. They also receive information on whether they understand
• Basic personal information and vocabulary
• Simple sentences and questions
• Grammatical features
• The language in a simple story
• Complex sentences
• The context of word meanings
For a more comprehensive assessment they are advised to speak with their teacher but this interactive reading assessment could be a start in helping them self-assess their reading skills and think about what to do next.
