Nelson-Denny Reading Assessment

The Nelson-Denny Reading Test is a standardized reading assessment that converts reading ability into a grade-level equivalent in just 35 minutes. The Nelson-Denny includes two parts: Vocabulary and Comprehension. The first part of the test, Vocabulary, is made up of 80 to 100 multiple-choice items, each with five response options. The time allowed for the Vocabulary section is 15 minutes. The second part, Comprehension, requires students to read 5 to 8 passages and to respond to 36 to 38 multiple-choice questions based on the content of those passages. The time allowed for the Comprehension section is 20 minutes.

The UHV Testing Center offers the Nelson-Denny Reading Test only to UHV students seeking entrance in the School of Education's teaching program. To view available dates and register, visit  our RegisterBlast test registion website.
