The New Group Reading Test (NGRT) assesses reading, comprehension, and, if needed, phonic awareness, and is an invaluable tool for assessing literacy across your school.
The information on this page will help you to understand how the tests can be used and how to interpret the data that they generate.
NGRT is available in paper or digital formats. They can be used termly, three times a year to produce robust and rigorous results and track progress.
The digital assessments adapt to match a student’s reading ability as they progress through the test, ensuring that students are assessed at the appropriate level. Paper users will need to select the correct level for their students.

Fully standardised, NGRT is a screening and progress monitoring measure of students’ reading and comprehension ability. The tests are particularly suitable for benchmarking EAL students and allow you to re-evaluate after interventions to help understand individual reading ability and support personalised teaching.
