Reliable, Research-Based Measures

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.
