"Very useful for diagnostics, and for establishing a need in students and a starting point for teachers/tutors." – April 2012 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
"I feel it would be a simplistic way to assess new readers - not intimidating, pictorial and friendly. It also looks practical in everyday life. I will order a set of these resources but have not used them - yet!." – April 2012 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
"An excellent resource for low level literacy assessment for learners for whom CARA is too difficult. Assesses functional literacy." – April 2012 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
"It has merit in certain settings. Its not likely to fit with my program at this time." – January 2011 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
