|Abrégé||Phonological awareness has been shown to be related to early reading acquisition. The purpose of this review is to critically examine the Test of Phonological Awareness (TOPA) (Torgesen & Bryant, 1994) in light of its rationale, with reference to the research on phonological awareness and its relationship to early reading skill and to phonological and language impairments. In the first section of the review, the rationale of the test is evaluated using evidence provided by the literature. In the second and third sections, the test is described and the technical data provided in the examiner's manual are evaluated using criteria for psychometric tests. In the concluding section of the review, the usefulness of the instrument is addressed.|
