An Analysis of Spelling Errors in the 1971 Tryout of a First Grade Spelling Component.
Schwab, Donna R.
Error rates for individual words tested and for sound-to-spelling correspondences occurring within those words are reported for 18 tests given during a tryout of the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) First Grade Spelling Component. Several types of spelling errors are discussed, and suggestions are provided for reducing each type of error. Commonly occurring word element substitutions are listed. Whether or not other elements would be spelled correctly more often if contrasted with elements previously learned cannot be substantiated by analysis of the tryout results. (The results of the study are presented in both narrative and table form.) (Author/RB)
