Short Description of Instrument

The Gray Oral Reading Test-5 (GORT-5) assesses a subject's oral reading, including strengths and weaknesses. The test consists of two forms, each containing 14 reading passages with corresponding comprehension questions following each passage. The test is individually administered and takes from 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

The individual receives five scores which provide information in the domains of rate, accuracy, fluency, comprehension and overall reading ability. In addition to standard scores (M=10, SD=3), percentile ranks, grade equivalents, and age equivalents are provided.
Skills commensurate with at least a Master's degree level in psychology, education, or related field are recommended for interpretation.
