Predictive Assessment of Reading (PAR)

The Predictive Assessment of Reading (PAR) can be used to identify skills in need of intervention, monitor progress, and predict future reading achievement. The assessment contains four reading subtests that can be administered to special needs, gifted, and developing students in grades PreK-3. PAR is offered in both English and Spanish, though the Spanish version is intended to be taken after the English version.
