Spelling assessment word search is here!

choose words

We introduced spelling assessments back in January, and although teachers loved them, there was one thing you still needed to make them perfect – creating your own spelling word lists.

So we added it!

Now, when setting a spelling assessment for your class, you have the option to create your own word list, so you can match it exactly to what you have been teaching.

You can then search from our database of words to find the ones you wanted to test your class on.

You can either search for a specific word, or search for words that fit a rule such as ‘ie’ words.


You can reorder your word list to get it just right.


Click the speaker button next to the word to hear what will be read aloud to your students.


There are already around 2500 words for you to choose from, with more on the way.
