A Comparison of Phoneme Shifting Responses between a Sample of Non-Reading Adults and Groups of Elementary Pupils.
Hensley, Bonnie; Kutzman, Sandra
This study attempted to compare the phoneme shifting ability of nonreading adults, and remedial elementary and good elementary students. The Phoneme Shifting Test was used to evaluate the phoneme shifting skill, specifically the shifting of the first and the last letters of words. Individual testing was done during October 1974. Phoneme shifting skills were found to be a variable that can discriminate among reading groups. Results indicated a difference existed between the good and the remedial groups and the adult group and the good group in the way they responded to the phoneme shifting measure. The remedial group and the nonreading adult group did not seem to differ in the way they responded. The discrepancy between the good readers' responses and those of the illiterate adults provides some evidence that the adult would not profit from a traditional developmental program. (Author/JM)
