When to test
We recommend administering NGRT Digital three times a year: once in each term. This will allow the most effective monitoring of reading progress.
Another possible way of using NGRT Digital would be to screen all students in the first term of the year. This screening can identify weaker readers for whom an intervention can be put in place. The intervention group can be screened again in the second term, and all students again in the third term.
The recent addition of a third digital form does not in any way hinder schools who may be used to using NGRT Digital once a year or twice a year - it can still be used in the same way.
