Self Diagnostic Reading Centers in the Elementary Classroom.
Williamson, Leon E.; Randolph, Dorothy
A study was conducted to determine if students could learn to monitor and evaluate their own reading performance. Five fourth and fifth grade students having a reading score indicating achievement within one year below grade level participated in the study for six weeks. Subjects spent one hour per school day learning how to monitor their reading behavior by using four informal diagnostic techniques: Veath's rule of thumb, the Informal Reading Inventory, the Cloze technique, and the cassette recorder as a means of applying the synthesized concepts of the other techniques. By compiling a list of the questions used by the subjects in the order that they mastered them and by noting the week in the study and the percent of mastery, it was concluded that students can learn to monitor and evaluate their reading performance and that this can encourage the development of their syntactic and semantic systems expressed through their language.
