Summary

    About This Product

    BY JOSEPH K. TORGESEN, RICHARD K. WAGNER, CAROL A. RASHOTTE

    The new TOWRE-2 measures an individual’s ability to pronounce printed words accurately and fluently. It includes two subtests:

    Sight Word Efficiency—the number of printed words that can be accurately identified in 45 seconds

    Phonetic Decoding Efficiency—the number of pronounceable printed nonwords that can be accurately decoded in 45 seconds 

    For both of the subtests there are now four equivalent forms, making it easier to retest, track progress, and monitor the effectiveness of intervention. Other improvements in the TOWRE-2 include all new, nationally representative norms and a revised manual containing new research.    

    The skills assessed by the subtests are so important that the National Research Council advises that every reading curriculum include procedures for measuring them. The TOWRE­–2 is a fast, economical way to achieve this goal. It is useful in diagnosing reading disabilities in older children and young adults, and (because it offers equivalent forms) in monitoring decoding and sight-word reading skills in early grades.
