What Is the ATI TEAS Reading Test?

The ATI TEAS Reading Test is also called the TEAS Reading Comprehension Test. This section assesses reading comprehension skills; attention to detail; and the ability to read, analyze, and make your answer choice in an efficient and organized manner.

You will have 64 minutes to answer the 53 items on the Reading section. The ATI TEAS Reading section is comprised of three topics:

  • Key Ideas and Details (22 items, 47% of the Reading section)
  • Craft & Structure (14 items, 30% of the Reading section)
  • Integration of Knowledge & Ideas (11 items, 23% of the Reading section)
  • An additional 6 questions are included as pretest items

At face value, these topics can seem overwhelming and confusing. However, at the most basic level, you are being tested on your ability to read and comprehend certain elements of a passage and the effect of those elements.

ATI Testing's TEAS V and ATI TEAS Reading Test

ATI Testing's ATI TEAS exam differs slightly from the old TEAS V, or TEAS version 5 test. Thus, there are limitations to using TEAS V practice tests when studying for the ATI TEAS. Our new ATI TEAS reading exam prep offers an ideal alternative.

While the TEAS V Reading section used to be made up of 61 questions, the new ATI TEAS Reading test is comprised of 53 questions. Our ATI TEAS English & Reading Pack offers practice tests that have 53 questions per test, thereby providing ideal TEAS test practice. The question topics are very similar and are relevant to the material you must study for the ATI TEAS exam.

How to Pass the ATI TEAS Reading Comprehension Test

Can you read a passage and quickly get a firm and clear grasp of what is happening in it? This skill can be broken down into various steps, all of which can be learned and practiced.

  • Can you analyze the content?
  • Can you identify and apply key ideas and details?
  • Can you make a solid judgment of the author’s style and intention?
  • Can you identify the author’s craft and recognize the elements of the text’s structure? 
  • Can you combine your analysis with your understanding of the key ideas and the author’s craft?

All these abilities present a clearer picture of the message that the text is trying to convey, thus enabling you to reach your answer much quicker. Focus your TEAS test prep on improving these skills.
