Performance by Prospective Teachers with Different Preparation in Diagnosis of Oral Reading by a Linguistically Different Student.
Lamberg, Walter J.; Tomas, Douglas A.
A study was made of the effects of three types of preparation on the accuracy of prospective teachers in conducting an Informal Reading Inventory (IRI), with 73 undergraduate students exhibiting features of Spanish in oral reading in English: (1) the study of Spanish (two or more semesters), (2) training in conducting an IRI (provided in a practicum course), and (3) experience in conducting the IRI with students of a Spanish-language background. Accuracy was measured by a count of the miscues correctly recorded as dialect features by the prospective teachers and by a count of the miscues unrelated to dialect which were incorrectly identified as dialect features. A brief summary of the implications is included. (MB)
