CAI Word Rate: Student Ability as Predictors of Achievement. Technical Report Number 2, ISCS.
Redfield, David D.; And Others
Twenty-seven seventh-grade students participated in a study designed to investigate the student rate of progress through the computer-assisted instruction (CAI) text in relation to ability and achievement. Measures were developed to determine the general reading rate for each individual and to notice any deviation from that rate. It was found that word rate and word rate stability as measures of reading behavior predict science achievement with greater efficiency than the Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT) for reading. The word rate measure also appears to have more predictive power than latency. Appendices contain statistical data collected by the study and a reference list. (JY)
