What is the Literacy Screener?
ELINET’s Literacy Screener is an online screening tool that indicates in a simple and fast manner whether somebody may have reading difficulties. The test takes no more than 12 minutes. When the time has expired, the programme stops automatically. Based on the result, it can be stated whether someone has difficulties reading. As such, it serves as a starting point for further testing into the exact reading level as well as improving someone’s literacy skills.
ELINET’s has developed, piloted, evaluated and – based on the pilot experiences – redeveloped a Literacy Screener for the United Kingdom, Turkey and Romania. These Screeners are available for demonstration purposes only and serve as a framework for the development of country specific instruments.
