I recommend KeyPhonics, which is based on years of research, because it is the best phonics screener and diagnostic assessment available. It provides valuable information about phonics skills essential for instruction, especially for those students struggling to read words, including students with dyslexia.

The KeyPhonics online assessment helped our teachers quickly pinpoint the areas of weaknesses in phonics for their students. The easy to administer benchmark screener and diagnostic assessments are valuable tools for elementary teachers. The resulting data presented in high quality reports assisted teachers in their decision making for their small group instruction in foundational literacy skills.
