QS Dyslexia Tests


QS Dyslexia Tests (QS) provide two online products for adult dyslexia screening:


QuickScan Questionnaire (14+) and

QuickScreen Dyslexia Test  (17+)

The products are ideal for both:

Individuals - single use payment and detailed report (£10 for QuickScan and £19.50 for QuickScreen)


Organisations  - for their recruits, staff or students with a management portal, detailed reporting and annual license.


Utilise one or both products depending on your requirements.


Some organisations choose to put everyone through QuickScan and then ask those who show signs of Dyslexia to undertake the more comprehensive QuickScreen test. Some organisations choose to just offer the QuickScan or QuickScreen test

The same applies to individuals – you can do both tests or just pick one.

The QuickScan and QuickScreen online dyslexia screening programmes have been developed by QS Dyslexia Tests (QS) - part of Pico Educational Systems Limited. The Pico team pioneered the first computer-based dyslexia assessment programme for adults called StudyScan.

Introduction to the QuickScan Questionnaire

  • 10-20 minute yes/no questionnaire
  • Suitable for those aged 14+
  • Simple to use on all desktops and large tablets
  • Standard report for individual and/or supervisor
  • Extended supervisor report via the QuickScan tutor page (for organisations)
  • Report showing indicators of dyslexia, dyspraxia and visual stress, areas where support is required and preferred learning style
  • For those showing signs of dyslexia, move on to the QuickScreen test for more comprehensive testing

Introduction to the QuickScreen Dyslexia Test

  • Six test sections: Verbal Skills, Visual Skills, Vocabulary, Memory, Sequencing and Processing
  • 1 hour to complete (in stages if required)
  • Suitable for those aged 17+
  • Simple to use on all desktops and tablets
  • Detailed report identifying indicators of dyslexia, test results for a range of skills and recommendations for future action
  • All candidate results are accessible from a single management portal (for organisations).

QuickScreen is based largely on the tried and tested StudyScan programme, so brings all those benefits to the new test. However it adds the important features of testing speed and efficiency of processing through a range of literacy skills in under 1 hour.

Over a million users have benefited from Pico’s’ dyslexia screening tools - either at home, in education or via their employer.
