Difference Between Reading and Language Scores in Terra Nova 3
By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D
Q: What is the difference in the Terranova3
between the reading and language scores? My child is at 98 in reading
and 51 in language. The report says there are "no resources" to help
with language "at this level." .
A: Reading and Language are clearly two
different tests in a battery of tests. It is very possible that a child
scores very high on reading but lower on language as they test different
abilities. I believe the comment would be a standard one and may not
translate to what it means literally.
It is best for you to approach his teacher to help make sense of the
scores with a complete breakdown to help your understanding. It is not
possible to interpret based on a single comment without reviewing the
complete score. Good luck.
