Reading Assessment Programme

Assess pupils’ key reading skills with our online diagnostic reading assessment tool.


What is the Reading Assessment Programme?

Simple to use

FFT's Reading Assessment Programme is a simple and effective online assessment tool designed to assess pupils on their GPC Accuracy, Decoding Accuracy and Fluency Levels (Words Correct Per Minute).

Words Correct Per Minute outcomes inform Standardised Scores, Reading Attainment Levels and Reading Fluency Ages for Year 1 to Year 6 pupils. For Reception pupils, Standardised Scores and Reading Attainment Levels are provided based on Decoding outcomes.


Assessments align with the most recent teaching block of GPCs and Common Exception Words for Reception and Year 1 pupils across a range of phonics programmes. Year 2 assessments focus on trickier GPCs with Spelling List words and Tier 2 vocabulary being a focus from Years 3 to 6.

Instantly produced reports allow schools to analyse data at whole school, class, group or individual pupil level. Informs next steps, whether through whole-class teaching or keep-up/catch-up intervention.
