The
RAN and RAS Tests are considered to be the "gold standard" of naming
tests. These tests reflect three decades of clinical evidence and
research across all parts of the United States, Canada, Europe, Israel,
Asia, and Australia that have examined the relation between processing
speed and reading. This wealth of research evidence added to the fact
that the tests are simple, fun, and quick to administer (i.e., five to
ten minutes for all six tests) make tests an important addition to any
prediction battery or diagnostic assessment of oral and written language
from age five to adulthood.



The RAN and RAS Tests are
individually administered measures designed to estimate an individual's
ability to recognize a visual symbol such as a letter or color and name
it accurately and rapidly. The tests consist of rapid automatized naming
tests (Letters, Numbers, Colors, Objects) and two rapid alternating
stimulus tests (2-Set Letters and Numbers, and 3-Set Letters, Numbers
and Colors). The Letters, Numbers, Colors, and Objects tests are
comprised of five high-frequency stimuli that are randomly repeated ten
times in an array of five rows for a total of fifty stimulus items. The
2-Set Letters and Numbers and 3-Set Letters, Numbers, and Colors tests
are comprised of 10 and 15, respectively, high-frequency stimuli that
are randomly repeated in an array of five rows for a total of fifty
stimulus items. On all tests, the examinee is asked to name each
stimulus item as quickly as possible without making any mistakes. Scores
are based on the amount of time required to name all of the stimulus
items on each test.



The tests were normed on 1,461 individuals
in 26 states; these norms are suitable for individuals from ages 5-0
through 18-11. The group of six tests usually take about five to ten
minutes to administer, depending on the age, language status (first or
second language), and reading abilities of the child. This includes time
for directions and practice items per test.
