Diagnostic Tool

This guide is intended for teachers and covers what the diagnostic tool is, how it can be used and how to access the reports it generates.

Please note that the diagnostic tool requires teacher supervision to be completed as it will require input from teachers in some sections.

This tool is not available to home and library accounts.

Using the Diagnostic Tool

Once you have launched the diagnostic tool you will see a list of 4 learning areas that can be tested: Pre-reading, phonics, sight words and spelling (Fig. 1). Select the option most relevant to the student you are testing and work your way through the tests (Fig. 2.a). If some potential improvement areas are detected by the application it will suggest exercises to assist the student (Fig. 2.a). After a section has been completed the results will become available in the student's diagnostic report (see next section).
