TEST2r Training

TEST2r Training

This course will introduce the components of TEST2r; the Manual, child’s Scorebooklet, suggested interventions and a website providing links to resources. Participants will have an opportunity to handle the various components and experience first hand the structure and content of TEST2r.

TEST2r, an early screening, diagnostic and intervention tool has been developed by Irish teachers for Irish schools and is intended to prevent literacy acquisition difficulties in five and six year olds. Class and Support Teachers may administer TEST2r in their schools. TEST2r was formally launched by the Minister for Education and Skills in June 2017.

Dr. Cogan will have the TEST2r kit with her for all participants to share. However, if participants have a copy of the kit in their school we ask them to bring it with them.

Dr. Pauline Cogan

Dr. Pauline Cogan is a native of Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. She was educated at Mercy Convent, Dungarvan and trained as a Primary School Teacher in Carysfort Training College, Blackrock, Co. Dublin in 1967. She graduated with a B.A. in Languages (1970) and a Higher Diploma in Education (1971) from University College Dublin.


With the help of teachers, the school community, the DES and other bodies, and driven by research, policy and practice, Dr. Cogan has developed TEST2r, a comprehensive test used to screen and pin-point the emergent literacy skills which a five – six year old child needs to be taught. It also provides an individual report on each child and pointers to intervention/resources.
