A basic diagnostic tool to test your students’ phonological awareness.
This phonological awareness diagnostic tool is a great way to get an overall picture of where your students are with their phonemic and phonological awareness. The skills that are included in this diagnostic tool include:
- rhyme recognition
- rhyme production
- word awareness
- syllable awareness
- initial sound identification and production
- final sound identification
- sound segmentation
- sound blending
- medial sound identification.
There is also a basic letter/sound knowledge and awareness checklist – though not a phonological awareness skill, it’s also crucial to gain an understanding of where your students are with this knowledge.
Please note: This has been created to be used as a guide for teachers. It is advised to check what programs or other testing your school wishes for you to complete with your students.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version of the resource.
