Our Products

Motif, and the Castles and Coltheart Test 2 (CC2)

Motif is a trustworthy self-serve toolkit of children’s literacy-related tests, that has been helping professionals trouble-shoot learning difficulties for over a decade.

The first paid digital test at Motif is the Castles and Coltheart Test 2 (CC2).

This children's literacy test assesses the functioning of the key processes in single word reading: sounding-out ability and whole word recognition ability. Scipilot developed an app that provides digital flashcards, and automated scoring for the test, available at the Apple App store, and coming soon to the web and Android.


Syras is a systematic review screening tool, built to help accelerate the manual labour required in systematic review screening.
