More and more students with dyslexia start in higher education. There is a growing need for valid and standardized diagnostic tools for this group (Tops, Callens, Lammer- tyn, van Hees, & Brysbaert, 2012). In this study, we developed and validated a new Word Reading Test for Students. The norms are based on the reading results of 200 Dutch stu- dents in their first bachelor year of higher education. Results showed that this new test is valid and reliable. Both sensitivity and specificity are high ( > 80%). It was confirmed that Dutch first year bachelor students with dyslexia read slower than their typically de- veloping peers. Reading performance of first bachelor students strongly relates to the education that they had in high school. The more theoretical their education, the better they read.
