In recent years, we have seen the publication of new tests to assess reading, especially for adolescents and adults. This is excellent news especially if we consider that, until a few years ago, for this age group we only had test re-calibrations designed for the little ones (which we have excluded from this article).

On some age groups there may be what appears to be a redundancy of tests with similar characteristics, but in reality, given that it is not recommended to re-administer the same test within six months to avoid the learning effect, the availability of similar tests it helps to have alternatives being re-evaluated.

Let's go now to see which are the main tests used to evaluate the reading. The evidence we have provided the link for are those availablei for free.
