Accuracy in Measuring Oral Reading in English by a Student with a Spanish Language Background.
Lamberg, Walter J.
This study examined the accuracy of teacher-candidates in conducting an informal oral-reading inventory, in English, of a student whose English exhibited Spanish language features. In one test, subjects recorded, analyzed, and scored an inventory; in a second, they analyzed and scored miscues which were already recorded. Subjects had training and experience in using inventories. The subjects were highly accurate in determining a reader's reading level and in distinguishing between miscues that were Spanish features and those that were not. It was concluded that differences between the language of teacher and student may not be a problem when teachers use informal, objective, individualized diagnostic instruments. (Author/AA)
