Assessing Reading Competency: A Psycholinguistic Perspective.
Rothstein, Evelyn
Discussed is an oral reading procedure for children with reading problems which assesses a reader's competency through an analysis of comprehension evidenced by meaningful versus non-meaningful alterations to the reading text. It is explained that this analysis indicates that the poor reader's needs frequently may be at the syntactic and semantic levels, rather than the word level. Examples are given of five narratives coded for type of textual alteration. Described are potential misplacements of readers in material below their conceptual needs because of word error rather than syntactic and semantic error counts. (CL)
