Magic Words Australian Benchmarks for Word Recognition

MIOOW® Magic Words® Recognition Tests are individually administered and are designed to record each student’s knowledge of the most frequently used words. Essential for planning, reporting, and evaluation, this data can be triangulated with other assessments to build a rich, comprehensive picture about each student’s ever-increasing bank of automatic sight words and reading skill level. These tests inform a teacher’s decision-making about instructional groupings and the next teaching focus.

Assessment forms an important part of any teaching program. Daily reading, writing, word study, Magic Words® activities and observations provide information to teachers about the learning progress of each student.

A strong and reliable consequence of systematically learning the Magic Words® is the direct correlation between the number of words known and predicting a student’s text level.
