An introduction to the York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC)
About the CPD course
The York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC) is a one-to-one; reading assessment that enables teachers to develop a detailed profile of a pupil's reading and comprehension skills from an early age through to the end of secondary school. This session will explore the pre-testing preparations and administration of YARC; as well as guidance for analysing and interpreting assessment data for the purpose of identifying next steps to ensure meaningful impact.

Our assessments provide an accurate measure of students’ abilities and their attainment and progress, as well as identifying any barriers to learning students may have. Schools and school groups use our test data not only to highlight strengths and gaps in an individual student’s learning, but also to deliver evidence of whole school – and whole school system – improvement.
