Quick and accurate naming with Acadience Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN)
Educators in states that require measures of Rapid Automatized Naming as part of screening students for reading difficulties, such as dyslexia, will find Acadience RAN to be a valuable tool for quick and accurate assessment and naming of repeated
sets of familiar items.
Acadience RAN measures are brief and administered individually. They are based on established procedures for creating and interpreting RAN tasks used in decades of research by multiple researchers.
Three Acadience RAN measures available in English and Spanish:
Objects: Assess a student’s skill in rapidly naming a set of familiar objects.
Letters: Assess a student’s skill in rapidly naming a set of familiar letters.
Numbers: Assess a student’s skill in rapidly naming a set of familiar numbers.
Using Acadience RAN
If you are using
Acadience® Learning Online (ALO) to administer and score Acadience Reading®
K-6, Acadience RAN is included and can be administered and scored on ALO as
well. Additionally, ALO serves as the data management system for both
assessments and can be used to view and interact with data.
