Primary Grade Understanding Vocabulary as Measured by Orally Administered Basic Word Vocabulary Test.
Bayer, Maria L.
The Basic Word Vocabulary Test (BWVT) was extended downward by administering it orally to 96 pupils selected randomly from grades one through four. Estimates of aural understanding vocabulary at each grade were obtained and were found to be much lower than results from previous studies, due to the strict criteria of the BWVT. Correlations with the Gates-MacGinitie reading tests were .74 for vocabulary and .54 for comprehension. The correlation with Kuhlman-Anderson IQ scores was .29. Results were interpreted as supporting the feasibility of using the BWVT as an orally administered measure. (Author/AA)
