Test-retest Reliability of the instrument was measured based on 123 of the participants. The study of content validity, item analysis, dimensionality and reliability provides evidence of a unidimensional structure, in line with theoretical framework. In conclusion, our results suggest the appropriateness of the TEO as a valid and reliable single-factor measure for the assessment of orthographical level
