What is Rapid Automatized Naming?

Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) is a key indicator of risk for reading difficulties, including dyslexia. NWEA is field-testing RAN in the beginning of each MAP Reading Fluency benchmark assessment. Students are shown a set of pictures of common items, and the students will be asked to speak the names of the items aloud. RAN requires a microphone.
