Report on the Fall 1970 Version of the Wisconsin Basic Prereading Skill Test. Report from the Project on Reading and Related Language Arts Basic Prereading Skills: Identification and Improvement.
Chapman, Robin S.
This report summarizes the findings of a Fall 1970 administration of the Basic Prereading Skill Test to 162 entering kindergartners. The test is being developed to diagnose prereading skill deficits in kindergartners and to predict end-of-first grade reading achievement. Included in the Fall administration were subtests for attending to letter order, letter orientation, and letter-string detail, and for segmenting sound sequences. A test for letter-naming ability was included for comparison to previous versions of the test, but will not be retained in the final version. Results are presented and the implications for test revision discussed. (Author)
