Effect of Pre-Questions on Oral Reading by Elementary Students by Elaine W Fowler( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To test the effects of prequestions and postquestions on word recognition and comprehension, two studies were conducted involving two groups of first through fifth grade students. An informal reading inventory using passages from Harper and Row's "Basic Reading Program" was administered and the results on the lowest instructional and frustrational levels were used as the measure of the subjects' performance on the post-questions task. For the prequestions task, additional passages at the students' instructional and frustrational levels were selected. Means were computed for percent of word recognition accuracy and percent of comprehension for each task at each level. Results for both groups indicated that there were no significant differences in word recognition or comprehension between the two tasks. The results are in line with those of other studies which have found that providing students with test questions before reading did not significantly aid or hinder their comprehension or word recognition. The studies indicate that more research in different comprehension tasks is needed. (Fl)

Assessing Elementary Students' Writing Skills. Publication No. 78.74 by Myron Friedman( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An instrument was developed for use in the evaluation of a pilot program to improve the writing skills of elementary school students in the Austin (Texas) Independent School District. Called the "Assessment of Writing Skills" (aws), the instrument assesses writing maturity, productivity, and writing mechanics by collecting a holistic evaluation and such frequency counts as total words, percentage of words spelled correctly, total sentences, sentence length, total correct punctuations, percentage of correct punctuations, total correct capitalizations, paragraph usage, number of modifying words, and sentence usage. The aws was used by three raters to evaluate 268 second through fifth grade students' descriptive writing samples during the fall (pretest) and spring (posttest) of the same academic year. A measure of interscorer/intrascorer reliability ensured that the essays were rated consistently. The data reveal that fourth graders had lower pretest scores than third graders on eight of 13 variables, a fact that might be explained by the corresponding shift from printing to cursive writing during that period. The results also suggest that the aws meets criteria for the evaluation of instructional programs; the holistic scores of aws can assess overall growth over time, while frequency counts can provide feedback regarding specific skill development and needs for instruction.
