TO assess sight word spelling: Test of Written Spelling (3rd edition, NOT 4th) 'unpredictable words subtest' (Larsen & Hammill, 1994) TO assess rule knowledge: 'nonword spelling subtest' from the Queensland University Inventory of Literacy (QUIL: Dodd et al., 1996). Or, Sacre & Masterson's (2000) Single Word Spelling Test (NFer Nelson) is excellent, too.
