The Test of Word Reading Efficiency (TOWRE) was originally published in 1999 to meet the need for a quick and reliable way to assess efficiency of sight word recognition and phonemic decoding in children and adults. Its purpose was to provide a reliable and valid measure of fluency and accuracy of print-based word-reading skills.

Changes to the TOWRE–2 include all new normative data collected in 2008 and 2009. Additional word lists have been added to both TOWRE–2 subtests, so that each of them now has a total of four equivalent forms. This will make the test more useful for monitoring progress and evaluating the impact of instructional interventions.  Along with the new forms of each subtest, the manual presents extensive information required to evaluate the educational and statistical meaning of changes in performance that may occur from one testing to another. The manual has been extensively revised and provides much new information about the validity and reliability of the TOWRE–2.  Data from numerous independent research studies have been aggregated to provide strong evidence for the construct validity of the TOWRE–2 as well as its utility in diagnostic assessments of children with reading disabilities.

Complete kit includes: Examiner’s Manual, Form A Word Cards, Form B Word Cards, Form C Word Cards, Form D Word Cards, 25 Form A Examiner Record Booklets, 25 Form B Examiner Record Booklets, and 25 Response to Intervention Booklets, all in a sturdy storage box.
