Dyslexia Tests (5th Grade)


Dyslexia is a learning disability in reading. People with dyslexia have trouble reading at a good pace and without mistakes. They may also have a hard time with reading comprehension, spelling, and writing. But these challenges aren’t a problem with intelligence. With early tests and diagnosis, we can help a dyslexic person to develop better with proper assistance.

Dyslexia is one of the common problems in education. Many children are deprived of proper education due to a lack of timely diagnosis of dyslexia and this causes them to face many educational and psychological problems. In order to diagnose dyslexia, 4 tests are common to use, of which 3 tests are done by the child and 1 test should be done by the dyslexic child’s parents.

  • LDDI:

During this test, the child is provided with a text according to his/her age and is asked to read the text and answer the questions.

Psychologists in the field of dyslexia assess the level, type, and severity of dyslexia in the child by listening to the child’s reading. By examining the child’s cognitive functions while reading, they can determine the level, type, and severity of dyslexia.

This test evaluates various aspects such as reading speed, reading accuracy, comprehension rate according to age, reading errors, and various other aspects related to learning processes.

  • “Goodenough” test (D.A.P):

Observing the intelligence level is one of the most important steps in analyzing the presence of dyslexia. There are so many children who are not able to learn or read properly due to intelligence issues and often are diagnosed as dyslexic.

The positive aspects of this test include its proper validity and its great scientific support. Moreover, performing this test is easily applicable for young children, and in the process of performing the test, the child feels satisfied and happy to cooperate. Accordingly, the foregoing test has received a lot of attention from experts both in performing and in representing the nature of the child’s intelligence.

This test evaluates the child’s IQ in seven categories by analyzing the child’s drawing.

  • Raven test:

The Raven Intelligence test, or Raven’s Progressive Matrices, is designed to measure intelligence and includes a set of images that are given to the person and he/she must fill the cut parts by choosing between the suggested images. This is a very popular test for measuring general intelligence or the G factor of a person. Raven intelligence test is used for assessing visual or spatial intelligence. In other words, this test can be used to evaluate logical intelligence, visual intelligence, non-verbal intelligence, as well as visual and mathematical-logical intelligence.

  • CLDQ:

The CLDQ was designed to assess specific dimensions of functioning that are most often impaired in children with learning difficulties, including reading, math, social cognition, spatial functioning, and memory.

In this test, the child’s parents or the ones who have raised the child and know him/her well can help the diagnosis of dyslexia more accurately by answering questions about the child’s educational processes.


To perform the test accurately, please follow the instructions below carefully:

Step One: Give the text to the child and ask him/her to read that aloud. After reading the text, ask the child the given questions. Note that the child’s voice should be recorded while reading the text and answering the questions. Then you must upload the recorded audio file.

Step Two: Give the child a set of colored pencils including seven colors: blue, green, red, yellow, purple, brown, and black.

Step Three: Give the child a regular black pencil.

Step Four: Give the child an eraser and a pencil-sharpener.

Step Five: Place an A4 size paper in front of the child vertically.

Step Six: Now ask the child: “Draw a person on this paper as well as you can, and then paint it if you want.”


The test order must be performed exactly as it was mentioned and if any changes are applied in the test process or the child is told additional sentences, the result will change significantly and will be invalidated. The child should be allowed to draw as he wishes, without any assistance, criticism, or indoctrination. You can only encourage the child by saying “Good, keep going” when he/she has doubts while drawing. If the child asks about the method, tell him/her: “you can draw in any way that you want, it will certainly be nice.”

The child should feel free to choose the location of the person on the paper, its dimensions, the direction of the paper which might be different from the direction you handed him/her, the material of the person, the use of the ruler, adding elements other than the specified subject, colors to pain or even to refuse to paint with colors. Since all these choices made by the child could be meaningful in the analysis of the test, any interference in the process of drawing will change the report and might lead to an improper analysis. As a result, follow the test exactly as instructed and do not interfere in the child’s drawing process in any way.

Step Seven: Now take a photo of the child’s drawing and upload it.

Step Eight: When the child finishes drawing a person (D.A.P test), you can now perform the Raven test. If the child does not want to take the Raven test after drawing or if he/she feels tired and bored, you can postpone it until the child rests and is ready for the next test.

Step Nine: Parents answer the CLDQ.

Step Ten: Your test result will be analyzed by expert psychologists and will be delivered within 3 business days.
