Description In the presented study, we provide normative Czech data for reading abilities tests for students of 9th grade primary school and 1st grade secondary school. Factors related to reading ability test scores were identified – speed of loud as well as quiet reading is surprisingly mildly slowing down with growing age, and the type of attended secondary school is a factor related to reading tests performance in students of the 1st grade secondary school. There is no difference found when comparing results of students of 9th grade primary school to students of 1st grade secondary school. The ability of these tests to identify students with dyslexia was explored and confirmed. The relation of quiet reading speed and comprehension of the text was explored. Psychometric characteristics of individual tests were also examined. There is a methodical list provided in the appendix for practical use of normative data. The presented data will help special educators to better assess the reading ability of students and to identify students with special needs more accurately.
