Our NEW Comprehension Evaluation Series is ready! We designed this series so that no verbal ability is required to complete these tests.

This series tests comprehension of the first 3 Dolch Word List levels: Pre-Primer (Emergent), Primer, and First Grade. This series is designed to be used with our High Frequency Picture Books, which are included in all of our reading bundles.

This Comprehension Series can also be used independently of our High Frequency Book series, though students may not know the high interest words taught in our HF Books. In that case, this Comprehension Series can only test knowledge of the Dolch high frequency words for the first 3 levels, and will not test knowledge of various high interest words we use (pizza, dog, etc.).

Comprehension Series Book Covers

Each level increases in difficulty; students in the first two Dolch levels are asked to silently read the sentence and mark or circle the correct picture.

At the advanced first grade level, two versions of each test are given: the first is color coded to show the answer to what is usually a “wh” question; the second version is without color. In this way, the first grade tests train the learner in referential comprehension: the student learns to refer back to the text to find the answer.
