BEST Literacy Test Administrators

BEST Literacy tests reading and writing skills in authentic situations specifically geared for adult English language learners in the United States. BEST Literacy can be administered individually or to groups of examinees in one hour. It is available in three parallel forms (B,C, and D) for pre- and post-testing.

The BEST Literacy Test Manual (June 2008) is designed to provide test administrators with all the information they need to give and score the test, including a rubric with clear benchmarks for scoring the note-writing tasks.
