Detailed Description+

Assesses the ability to spell.
Despite the fact that in our everyday lives we have access to an ever-increasing range of tools that help us to spell correctly, these tools are merely a means of support and no substitute for the learned ability to spell.
WRST is based on the recent spelling reforms in Germany and Austria. It is designed to test the spelling ability of young people and adults in a work-related context, especially in connection with recruitment, selection of trainees and occupational rehabilitation.

S2: Parallel form.
S3: Screening form (standard).
S4: Screening form (parallel).

Task+
