YARC Webinars

The York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC) enables teachers to assess the reading and comprehension skills of children aged 5 to 18 years, and was developed by UK publisher GL Assessment and respected reading researcher from the University of York Maggie Snowling.

YARC is a powerful tool for teachers:

  • informing allocation of Learning & Support resources
  • comparing an individual’s scores with the ‘norm group’
  • providing insight into interventions a student may require
  • highlighting what skills a student needs to progress
  • monitoring a student’s progress over time (ages 4-18)

SPELD SA have agreed with Psychological Assessments Australia (PAA) to sell access to three online webinars which teach how to implement the YARC; registration is possible for anything from 1 to 3 webinars, with a discount offered to SPELD SA members. It is important to note, these webinars are On-Demand which means once you start watching there is no option to pause during viewing or re-watch this Webinar at a later time - you must complete the viewing in a single session.

  • Webinar 1 - Making the most of YARC, Early Reading & Passage Reading (Infants and Primary)
  • Webinar 2 - Making the most of YARC, Passage Reading (Secondary)
  • Webinar 3 - Making the most of YARC Interpreting results and Intervention Planning
