Placement Tests

Placement for All About Reading

Use the placement tests below as a guide to help determine which level of All About Reading is best for your student.
Also, we recommend having your child read the sample stories from the previous level as a further confirmation. You want your child to be reading fluently with good comprehension before going to a higher level.

Placement for All About Spelling

All About Spelling is a building block program–each level builds upon the previous one. The rules and concepts learned in Level 1 are applied in Level 2, and then those are applied in Level 3, and so on. For this reason, we recommend that most students start with Level 1. Since AAS is mastery-based, the level numbers do not correspond to grade levels. For example, Level 1 doesn't have to be completed in first grade.

Still have questions? Check out the resources below:

Is my student ready to start spelling?
  • We recommend starting spelling instruction once the student has completed AAR Level 1, or the equivalent. Learn more >>
Which level should my student start in?
  • To prevent any gaps in knowledge, we suggest that most students start with Level 1. Learn more >>

  • Placement is based on concept knowledge and not which words a student has memorized. You can download lesson samples for each level of All About Spelling to review these concepts. View samples >>

  • If you think your student might be able to start at a higher level, please take a look through the scope and sequence links to determine where he or she might have gaps in concept knowledge. Just know that the student has to know all of the earlier rules and strategies to start in a higher level. View here >>
