The Pre-Reading Skills Battery; and Rationale for and Description of the Pre-Reading Skills Battery.
Center for Urban Education, New York, NY.
The Pre-Reading Skills Battery is a group-administered diagnostic battery measuring skills considered to be prerequisite to beginning reading instruction. Three major areas of skills are included: language, visual perception, and auditory perception. Within each of these three areas several skills are tested through two or three sub-tests. In some sub-areas there are two or three sub-tests for a particular skill covering a range of difficulty. The battery is so constructed that all the thirteen tests need not be given to determine a child's skills in each of the three areas. The tests in the pilot edition are: (1) meaning vocabulary, (2) auditory comprehension, visual comprehension, letter similarities, letter combination similarities, memory-letters, memory-letter combinations, auditory discrimination, (3) auditory blending, and auditory sequencing. A pilot edition of the test battery is included. (Author/TO)
