There are 24 spelling assessments, one for each level in the TTRS Course. Each assessment consists of 20 random words introduced in that level.

Admin or Teacher account

If you are an adult user using the Admin account, select a level from the dropdown list first and then select Spelling Assessment to start.

Student account

From a student account, select the TTRS Course, choose an unlocked level, and then select the Spelling Assessment button at the top right of the screen. 

Note: If a student needs to access a spelling assessment for later levels, by default, the admin or teacher will need to unlock these. Learn more about this here

During the assessment:

  • Your student will be presented with a blank screen and will hear the first word play

  • They should type the word and press enter on the keyboard to submit their response

  • They can press number 2 on the keyboard to repeat the word

  • They will not see the on-screen keyboard and cannot preview a word during a test 

  • There will also be no red letters showing a mistake, unlike in a normal module

At the end of the test, they will be presented with a score and a list of words. Any mistakes will be shown alongside the correctly spelled word.

The test can be repeated as many times as required. When they repeat a test, the same words will be tested – and the score will show a comparison with the previous test. 

To view previous test results, select the back button as shown below.

If the test is repeated at a later date, 20 random words will be generated again. Note, these may be different words than the first assessment.

The list of all tests taken can be found under the My stats tab for the students, under Tests.
