Websites like Mind Sprinting, Sonlight and Let's Go Learn offer reading level assessment tests to help determine a child's reading level. Reading level assessment tests use lists of words that the child reads out loud and, as the test progresses, the words increase in difficulty .
The Sonlight website provides a free reading level assessment test that is designed to be less confusing than the dots and dashes that are used in some testing. At the end of the test, the child's reading grade level is displayed.
The Let's Go Learn website offers an online diagnostic reading assessment for grades K through 12. The test functions like a reading specialist assistant to the child, adapting to the child's ability as they answer each question in real-time. The test uses eight sub-skills of reading and uses interactive technology with audio, multimedia images and text. The instant results are available for download, printing or just to view online.
The Mind Sprinting website offers four pages of detailed results for several academic tests, such as reading grades K through third, reading comprehension grades four through 12 and personal or state standard math. Users are required to sign up and register on the site in order to obtain the results for any test.
