An Investigation of Selected Readiness Variables As Predictors of Reading Achievement at Second Grade Level.
Seals, Caryl Neman
This study was designed to determine the relationship of selected readiness variables to achievement in reading at the second grade level. The readiness variables were environment, mathematics, letters and sounds, aural comprehension, visual perception, auditory perception, vocabulary and concepts, word meaning, listening, matching, alphabet, numbers, and copying. All of the kindergarten students in a small town were administered three readiness tests in April 1970. In January 1972 the thirty students remaining in the school system were administered the New Developmental Reading Tests. It was concluded from the results that the most effective predictors of overall reading achievement at mid-year of the second year in school appear to be auditory perception, letters and sounds, and mathematics. It was also concluded that these variables are independent measures, because the factor analysis showed that they contribute most heavily to different factors. (Author/WR)
