Katrina,
You need five Grade Equivalent scores: silent reading comprehension (you 
have that one from the TABE), word recognition ( there is a link to the San 
Diego Quick Assessment on Make a Match page), graded Spelling lists are 
available from you local public schools (until we get one up on the site), 
oral reading rate (we tell yo hoe to do it), and word meaning.  Look on the 
site's Test Bank to find published tests on all the components; the prices 
are given also  -
Perhaps I am not answering your question - the site gives information about 
learners who have similar patterns of scores on these sub-skills, but you 
have to do the assessment, and how to get the tests, not all the tests 
themselves, is given on the site.
I suggest you begin at the beginning of the Match a Profile track.
the Test Bank can be found from the Mini-Course track to Assessments to 
TestBank.

Rosalind
