What are pseudo words?
A pseudo word is a fake word consisting of a string of letters that resembles a real word but doesn't actually exist in the language eg brib, sneeb. In the phonics screening test they are also referred to as 'alien words' as each pseudo word is presented with an 'alien' to let the children know that the word isn't real.
Why does the phonics screening test use pseudo words?
Pseudo words are included in order to assess the ability to decode as opposed to using memory which supports the reading of familiar real words.
Are all phonics screening test words pseudo words?
No, half of the words are real and half are pseudo words. We have flashcards for both real and pseudo words for multiple graphemes available as part of the free Monster Phonics trial.
