The Australian Standardised Spelling Test (ASSAT) is a norm-referenced assessment, which compares the performance of students to that of a reference group of peers. The test series is suitable for students aged 5-15 years, with the word lists graded in difficulty and based on many variations of lists including common sight words, commonly misspelled words, essential word lists and word lists recommended in state and national curriculums.
Independently assessed, verified and standardised by Dr. Anthony Stokes of the Australian Catholic University, the results are acclaimed to be “more accurate than the original SAST results” (Stokes 2013).
