The test is constructed considering the review and analysis of frequent words in our environment, containing the alternation of the grapheme b and v, to represent the phoneme /b/, the graphemes j and g to represent the sound /j/, words, that can be written with ll or y, those containing the grapheme, that corresponds to no phoneme: h, and the graphemes c and s, that represent the sound /s/. The factor structure, reliability and validity of the test was examined, after being applied to a sample of 488 students from Montevideo, selected by convenience sampling, between two private schools from medium low and medium high socioeconomic status. The confirmatory factor analysis, using the program NOHARM for a one-factor model, indicates an adequate fit to a one-dimensional structure, achieving very good internal consistency reliability for the total sample and per course
