Frequently Asked Question:

Examinee in grade 1 eceived a raw score of 0 on the Pseudoword Decoding, but still received a standard score of 79.

Answer:

The scale has a natural floor for the earlier grades because the construct that is being measured in this subtest develops later than other reading-related constructs (Word Reading for example).

When analyzing data for first grade children, it is suggested that the Word Reading subtest will provide the best sample of basic reading skills as it contains the prerequisite skills required for successful performance on the more difficult task of Pseudoword Decoding.
