The TOSCRF-2 is a quick and accurate method of assessing the silent general reading ability of students ranging in age from 7 years 0 months to 24 years 11 months. It has a test manual and four equivalent forms (A, B, C, D). The TOSCRF-2 was normed using a national representative sample of 2,375 individuals, residing in 29 states. It yields raw scores, standard scores, percentiles, also age and grade equivalents. Classroom teachers, special education teachers, reading specialists, school psychologists, speech pathologists, or any other professionals with some training in standardized test administration can use the TOSCRF-2.
Using a series of printed passages adapted from those in the Gray Oral Reading Tests–Fifth Edition and the Gray Silent Reading Tests, the TOSCRF can be used to identify both poor and good readers. Students are presented with short passages comprised of rows of contextually related words, ordered by reading difficulty; all words are printed in uppercase without any spaces or punctuation between the words (e.g., AYELLOWBIRDWITHBLUEWINGS). Students are asked to draw a line between the boundaries of as many recognizable words as possible within 3 minutes (e.g., A/YELLOW/BIRD/WITH/BLUE/WINGS). The passages become gradually more complex in their content, vocabulary, and grammar (embedded phrases, sequenced adjectives, affixes, etc.). To do well on the test, the student has to read the meaning of the text. The test can be easily administered to a single student or to an entire classroom of children, thus making it an efficient and cost-effective screening method.
The TOSCRF-2 can be used to:
- Identify students with comprehension and general reading difficulties and document the degree of their problems.
- Screen large numbers of students at once.
- Monitor student progress up to four times per year.
- Research the nature of reading difficulties.
