Autumn Courses 2016

TEST 2r Training … New Assessment tool for primary schools 

TEST2r is an Irish developed, Irish normed, Early Screening & Diagnostic test to identify which 5 and 6 year olds (Senior Infants, First Class) may experience literacy difficulties in their school careers.  The test has been validated and is found to be very reliable.  There are Irish norms which will help teachers decide where each child performs in relation to these.  TEST2r will also be able to provide an electronic report, pointers towards intervention and resources for intervention for each child who requires it.  The Test was designed and developed with the help of Irish teachers in Irish schools by Dr Pauline Cogan.  She will engage in face to face training for the administration of TEST2r at Tipperary Education Centre in  Thurles, in September.
