Function of the screening
The Cued American English Competency Screening-R (CAECS-R ©2002, TECUnit.)
provides a framework for assessing basic cue reading skills at the word level.
Who can take the test

cue reading skills. Employers often require both the CAECS–E and CAECS–R

As of June 1, 2002, the CAECS-R is a prerequisite subtest of the CLTNCE,
replacing the BCSPR. In some states, it is also a prerequisite subtest for
State Level Assessments, or Quality Assurance Screenings. The CAECS-R screening
is available at any time through the mail.
Scoring and Rating
The CAECS-R is rated by one individual. The score reflects the percentage
of correct answers. A passing score on the CAESC–R is 85% or greater.
Review of test results
For the CAECS-R, the testee receives not only a rating but also a precise
profile of factors which contribute to that rating. A comprehensive report
including a description of errors and recommendations for improvement assists
the cuer in his/her pursuit of standard cueing. In the event that an employer
or individual other than the testee submits the application and pays the
fee for the CAECS-R, the individual paying the fee will receive copies of
all Rating Profiles and Error Analysis forms.
