The new Test of Silent Word Reading Fluency-Second Edition (TOSWRF-2) provides a reliable and valid measure of students' ability to recognize printed words accurately and efficiently. Its first edition has been popular with professionals in psychology, education, and reading and was used as an outcome measure in the congressionally-mandated evaluation of the federal government's No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (PL 107-110, title 1, Part B, Subpart1) known as the Reading First Impact Study (Gamse, Jacob, Horst, Boulay, & Unlu, 2008).
The TOSWRF-2 is a companion to the Test of Silent Contextual Reading Fluency-Second Edition (TOSCRF-2). While the TOSWRF-2 measures a student's ability to recognize individual words accurately and efficiently, the TOSCRF-2 measures a student's essential contextual reading abilities (i.e., word identification, word meaning, word building, sentence structure, comprehension, and fluency).
New Features of the TOSWRF-2
New normative data were collected between 2009-2012.
Co-normed with the TOSCRF-2 and TWS-5.
Normative information was extended downward to include ages 6 years 3 months and upward to include ages 18-0 through 24-11.
Alternate forms were increased from two to four.
An all-new, one-minute practice form was added to each TOSWRF-2 form.
Evidence for validity has been expanded to include studies by independent researchers as well as by the test authors.
