Components of Spelling Test Online Platform

The Components of Spelling Test Online Platform provides busy teachers a reliable and complete analysis of students’ spelling errors and a detailed class report, designed to assist teachers to plan and deliver differentiated and systematic teaching of spelling. It is available for both the CoST and CoSTEY.

The online version of the CoST automatically generates a comprehensive error analysis following the completion of the CoST or CoSTEY. A detailed report is then provided for the class or group of students. To access the online test, students are required to log in to the online CoST platform using a unique Student ID. To complete the online test, students may use a web browser on a device connected to the internet such as an iPad or a laptop. As an alternative, the teacher may choose to use the online platform to enter students’ handwritten spelling responses.
