Picture of (GORT-5) Gray Oral Reading Test, Fifth Edition


The fifth edition of this enduring test quickly identifies students with oral reading difficulties. The GORT-5 offers updated norms, an expanded age range, revised comprehension questions, and streamlined basal and ceiling rules that make administration easier and more efficient.

The test includes two equivalent forms, both of which contain 16 developmentally sequenced reading passages. The student reads these passages aloud and answers five questions about each one. The examiner records the student’s reading rate, deviations from the printed passages, and miscues. The Manual provides clear scoring guidelines and a system for analyzing miscues in four areas: Meaning Similarity, Function Similarity, Graphic/Phonemic Similarity, and Self-Correction. This miscue analysis system is helpful in designing interventions tailored to each student’s needs.

Free of gender and ethnic bias, the GORT-5 is widely used to identify students with poor oral reading proficiency, to pinpoint specific strengths and weaknesses, and to document reading progress in response to intervention.
