Conversion Table: Tenths to Months

1 = 1 month

2 = 2 months

3 = 4 months

4 = 5 months

5 = 6 months

6 = 7 months

7 = 8 months

8 = 10 months

9 = 11 months

Scoring

Keep a running total as you mark each group of ten (i.e. 10 20 26 30

32 36).

Take the raw score (the total number of words spelt correctly) divide

by 10 and add 5 i.e. 36 + 5 years = 8.6 = 8.7 (converted to months).

Explain the procedure

Words dictated by teacher and marked in groups of ten

Call out each word, starting at the top and going from left to right

(i.e. 'see')

Use the word in a sentence so that its meaning is clear (i.e. “I can see

the bird.”)

Say the word again - “see”

Child continues test until there are 10 mistakes in succession

[To ease the checking, make a transparency of the test to lay

underneath the spellings.]

N: Child’s name D: Date dd/mm/yy (and later)

DOB: Date of Birth Score: xxx/100

On the ‘Spelling Grid’ (20 x Rows and 5 x Columns) should be written

Test the entire group at one time. The children should be seated

sufficiently far apart in order to prevent them from being able to copy

from each other.

With all standardised tests it is essential that there is no teaching to

the test and you should wait at least six months between testing.
