Identification of Simple and Compound Vowels by First Graders.
Wright, Ouida T.
This instrument was designed to determine whether by structuring and sequencing monosyllabic English words in two different patterns--administered with the same control procedures--first-grade children would be aided in detecting, identifying, and discriminating among single vowels and their combined forms; in associating them with their specific pronunciations; and in transferring this knowledte to other words and other compound vowels after a limited but intensive period of treatment. This instrument consists of two pretests, two experimental treatments, and two posttests. Content validity was assured by the use of frequency and utility data in the selection of the test items, and by correlations between the scores on the English words and on the synthetic words. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Reading), title, author, date, and age range (primary), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
