About YARC

The York Assessment of Reading for Comprehension (YARC) was developed by UK publisher GL Assessment and respected reading researcher from the University of York Maggie Snowling.

YARC is a powerful tool for teachers:

  • informing allocation of Learning & Support resources
  • comparing an individual’s scores with the ‘norm group’
  • providing insight into interventions a student may require
  • highlighting what skills a student needs to progress
  • monitoring a student’s progress over time (ages 4-18)
