The ART is currently being restandardised and a new version is planned for 2016.  Given this information, it has been decided to remove the advice regarding its use ONLY as a qualitative tool.  The advice regarding the 2 minutes writing task has also been removed. The ART remains on the list of approved tests for oral prose reading.
