Academic Word List tests

These two tests test receptive knowledge of the words in the Academic Word List (Coxhead, 2000).

The tests were designed and trialled by Andrea Flavell and revised by Paul Nation. Andrea has kindly agreed to make them freely available for teachers, students and researchers to use. There is no need to seek permission to use the tests for non-commercial purposes.

Word association tests

Professor John Read created a word association test that tests how well you know and understand words from the Academic Word List when you see them with related words and in a reading passage.
