Phonological Awareness Test-2: Normative Update (PAT-2: NU)

Authors: Carolyn Robertson, MEd / Wanda Salter, MA, MS, CCC-SLP

  • Individual Administration

  • Norm-Referenced
  • Qualification Level B

The PAT-2:NU is a standardized assessment of phonological awareness, phoneme-grapheme correspondence, and phonemic decoding skills. Test results help educators focus on those aspects of oral language that may not be systematically targeted in classroom reading instruction.

The PAT-2:NU has been revised to include six core subtests that measure students’ awareness of spoken syllables and phonemes and two supplemental subtests that measure students’ knowledge of sound/symbol correspondence in isolation and in practice.

Core Subtests (ages 5-9)

Discrimination and Production—identify rhyming pairs and provide a rhyming word

Segmentation: Sentences, Syllables, and Phonemes—divide by words, syllables, and phonemes

Isolation: Initial, Final, and Medial—identity sound position in words

Deletion: Compound Words, Syllables, and Phonemes—manipulate root words, syllables, and phonemes in words

Substitution with Manipulatives—isolate a phoneme in a word, then change in to another phoneme to form a new word

Blending: Syllables and Phonemes—blend units of sound to form new words

Supplemental Subtests (ages 6-9)

Phoneme-Grapheme Correspondence: assesses knowledge of sound/symbol correspondence for consonants, vowels, consonant blends, consonant digraphs, r-controlled vowels, vowel diagraphs, and diphthongs

Phonemic Decoding—assess general knowledge of sound/symbol correspondence to blend sounds into nonsense words

The test is comprehensive and includes a wide variety of tasks; performance on each of these tasks has been correlated with success in early reading and spelling. The straightforward, developmental format lets you easily tease out specific skills and plan effective interventions. This version updates norms based on the 2016 U. S. Census, and includes recalculated standard scores and two new composite scores: Phonological Awareness Index and Phoneme-Grapheme Index.
