The TOWRE-2 measures an individual’s ability to pronounce printed words (i.e., sight word efficiency) and phonemically regular nonwords (i.e., phonemic decoding efficiency), skills that are critical in the development of overall reading ability.

  • Four alternate and equivalent forms of each subtest are available, making the test even more useful for monitoring progress and evaluating the impact of instructional interventions.
  • The Sight Word Efficiency (SWE) subtest assesses the number of real words that an individual can accurately identify within 45 seconds. Similarly, the Phonemic Decoding Efficiency (PDE) subtest measures the number of pronounceable nonwords that an individual can accurately decode within 45 seconds.
  • Revised manual provides extensive new information on the test’s reliability and validity.
