Purpose: Identify students who have difficulty with reversals and what types of reversals are problematic: objects, letters, numbers, words, or letter sequences Ages: 5 through 18 years Administration Time: 20 minutes Format: Identification of letter and number reversals; individual or group administration Scores: Two overall scores: Correct Responses and Errors--the former presented as standard scores, percentile ranks, and age equivalents, and the latter interpreted in relation to norm-based cutoff points
The Jordan Left-Right Reversal Test-3rd Edition (2011) helps clinicains identify students who have difficulty with reversals, and what types of reversals are problematic: objects, letters, numbers, words or letter sequences. Reversals are a major stumbling block for students learning to read. The Jordan-3 now has two parts (children ages 5-8 take only Part 1) consisting of five subtests, in developmental sequence. The first and last subtests are new. A Remdial Checklist provides suggested remediation activities.
Subtest 1-A (new) presents line drawings; the student indicates which are reversed.
Subtest 1-B presents letters and numbers; the student identifies reversals.
Subtest 2-A presents words; the student indicates which letters are reversed.
Subtest 2-B shows 20 sentences; the student indocates reversed words ("saw" vs. "was").
Subtest 2-C (new) presents two columns of letter sequences; the student compares them and identifies which letters in the second column are out of sequence.
Administration and Scoring The JLRRT-3 can be administered to individuals or small groups. Two scores are derived. Correct Responses (reversals correctly identified) and Errors (nonreversed items that were incorrectly identified as reversals, plus reversals that were not identified). Both scores are converted to percentiles.
